Hercules Coming Back To The Big Screen

This movie needs to star Zach Bartlett. [Number 10 on the video list in the link.] When is that kid going to get his big break?

Peter Berg, director of The Kingdom and Hancock, has signed to direct an adaptation of Hercules: The Thracian Wars, a recent comic book from Radical Publishing. It's really violent and pretty bloody from what I understand, so maybe this'll be more like 300 than anything else.

Spoiler alert - if you haven't seen
Hancock, don't read this next part.

Given that Berg is directing this, there's always the possibility of Will Smith's character from Hancock making a cameo fighting right there next to Hercules. That would be worth the price of admission. But only if Zach is Hercules.

The Zach Bartlett link sends you to a video of John Tsachousas or something...

Check yourself, Ben

I said it was Number 10 in the video link list on the side of the page!

I'm pretty sure a direct link to one of his videos doesn't exist, so that was the best I could do on short notice.
