With news breaking today that Renny Harlin will be helming Millenium's 70Mil Hercules 3D i couldn't be more delighted. Harlin has long been one of my favourite action directors and this is fantastic news. I'm so glad he has scored another huge gig!

Hercules 3D will be the first of two unrelated Hercules films next year and it's being helmed by Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin. We spoke with Harlin about the film, which was shot in the same facilities in Bulgaria as Zack Snyder's 300, and he elaborated on its story as well as what we can expect from its star Kellan Lutz.

"The action is really big and fun, but at the heart of it all is a great love story. This is an origin story, that introduces him to people who might not know who Hercules is or it's for those who have a cartoon-y idea of who he is, carrying around big things"

Having previously described the film as being more like Ridley Scott's Gladiator than "flying horses," Harlin elaborated on the film's story a little more, and reinforced that idea.




"This is the story of a young man who comes to terms with who he is and how he has much more responsibility. His father is Zeus and his mother was mortal, and he has a much bigger mission in his life. It's about fulfilling your destiny and responsibilities. It's an epic adventure story and he wants to be reunited with this girl who was ripped away from him. We have some amazing actors. You're going to see Kellan Lutz in a way you've never seen. It's just a big scale story and I'm excited to show the world next spring."



Harlin concluded that the film is currnetly in post production and he will deliver his cut of the movie in six weeks.



Hercules 3D is written by Sean Hood and Hanna Weg with a cast that also includes Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, and "Spartacus" star Liam McIntyre. It is targeting a March 2014 release.

UPDATE: CraveOnline also spoke today with Harlin and learned that the film will include one elaborate sequence that runs for six minutes without cutting away.

“I have a battle scene that lasts six minutes that is all one shot,” Harlin told the site. “[It] covers a sea battle and ground battle and hand to hand combat and sword fighting, spears and bows and arrows and flying boulders, all done in one shot that never cuts. I’ll give you that spoiler. That’s one of the biggest shots I’ve ever created.” http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/178795-exclusive-renny-harlin-updates-on-hercules-3d

Now, I like Harlin as a director.. I think he's got a good eye for the big action set-piece and has a pretty decent pedigree with action movies to date. I also like the idea of seeing Hercules' tale on the big screen. But isn't the above basically the plot of Clash of the Titans?

Lets hope its vintage Harlin and not recent-gashville Harlin.

I dunno, 5 Days of War was pretty good and 12 Rounds is a good action movie.

Ah fair enough. I have low expectations as this one is lacking Harlin in the directors chair.

So... they do know that Hercules isn't a Roman Empire period character right?

Looks awful

Maybe it's just the trailer doing a poor job but it does look like 300 remade by Uwe Boll.

Trailer looks great, Scott Adkins looks and sounds fantastic in it too! Excitement piqued. Hope the 3D will be good.

Looks a bit shit and shockingly cheap. A certain Mr Johnson and Mr Ratner are going to win the battle of the Hercules movies, I imagine.

Ha. I actually think him besting someone would be awesome. And I don't even like Brett Ratner. I'd just find it funny.

Not sure what that means, bigger budgets don't mean better movies. Harlin's film has every chance of being the better film but I just think it looks shit. Plus, Ratner has The Rock, that charismatic bugger automatically makes everything better, he just oozes likeability and cool. Ratner's film will be more fun anyway with The Rock in it and going by this.

There are ways to use a low budget. This isn't it.
