Brett Ranter is directing the film based on the Radical Publishing "Hercules" comic books of which there were two series; "The Thracian Wars" and "The Knives of Kush," both written by Steve Moore with art by Cris Bolsin. "The Thracian Wars" is officially described as follows:

Fourteen-hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the Earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules, powerful son of the god king Zeus, received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods, finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and the presence of death. These men and woman never question where, why, or whom they go to fight; only how much they will be paid. Knowing this, the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. Hercules begins to question King Cotys' motives when he takes his army out to battle and sees them practice on innocent men, women, and children of their neighbors. Deep in his soul something stirs, but is it enough to stop a mad king and his army of the damned from marching across Greece - or even Olympus itself?!

It Stars Dwayne Johnson in the title role of Hercules plus Aksel Hennie and Rufus Sewell have already joined the cast...

and now Ian McShane has signed up so has a few other British actors http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/ian-mcshane-joins-dwayne-johnson-430270

Heres the full press release for Hercules:

quote:

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Paramount Pictures announced that principal photography has officially begun on Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Fast & Furious 6) and directed and produced by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand). Filming takes place in Budapest, Hungary.

Hercules also stars Golden Globe-winner Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Rufus Sewell (Legend of Zorro), Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, American Horror Story), Peter Mullan (War Horse, Top of the Lake) and Academy Award-nominee John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). Rounding out the main cast is Rebecca Ferguson ("The White Queen), Ingrid Bols Berdal (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Aksel Hennie (Headhunters) and Reece Ritchie (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Hercules is produced by Beau Flynn (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Barry Levine (Oblivion) and Ratner. Executive producers are Peter Berg (Battleship), Sarah Aubrey (Battleship), Ross Fanger (Iron Man) and Jesse Berger (Oblivion).

Based on the Radical Studios graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars," the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend

Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules' help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail... he must again become the hero he once was... he must embrace his own myth... he must be Hercules.

The behind-the-scenes creative team led by Ratner includes: Academy Award -nominee director of photography Dante Spinotti (The Insider, L.A. Confidential), editor Mark Helfrich (X-Men: The Last Stand), production designer Jean-Vincent Puzos (10,000 B.C.), costume designer Jany Temime (Skyfall), 2nd Unit director Alexander Witt (Skyfall), VFX supervisor John Bruno (Avatar), SFX Supervisor Neil Corbould (Black Hawk Down) and stunt coordinator Greg Powell (Fast & Furious 6).

Hercules will be distributed worldwide by Paramount Pictures on July 25, 2014 with select international territories as well as all television distribution being handled by MGM.

So that's what happened to Ratner!

The guy was everywhere at one point, everywhere, then he just sort of disappeared.
