Can you smell what role The Rock is cooking up next?

February 25th, 2012 by bash Comments

Variety is reporting that my third favourite wrestler of all time (behind Rowdy Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in talks to play Hercules.

Brett Ratner, the man behind Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand, will direct from a script by Ryan Condol. The film will be an adaptation of Steve Moore’s graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian War, which debuted in May 2008.

Johnson, who currently stars in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and will next be seen in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is currently prepping for his role in Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
