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.
