The new 'Hercules' trailer is upon us and it has everything you'd want from a big summer release starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in that title role. Big battles. Bulging muscles. Mythological beasts. Screaming. Slow motion. You know, the usual.
'Beverly Hills Cop 4' seemed like one of those things that was fun to think about -- like 'Dredd 2' -- but would probably never happen. While rumors of it moving forward have been circulating the web for some time, Paramount has revealed that, yes, this will officially happen and has been given a release date for 2016.
We've seen tons of pictures of Dwayne Johnson as the legendary hero from director Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' but now you can see the action star in, well, action! In this new clip from the upcoming film, see Johnson's Hercules in his fabled lion's hood (which does look pretty badass, we gotta say) preparing to take on a whole army of bad guys.
Earlier this year, we saw what Renny Harlin's version of 'Hercules' looked like with 'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz in the title role, but now it's time for the strongman to take center stage. Brett Ratner is at the helm of this new adaptation of the 'Hercules' story with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the role he was born to play.
There's a number of reasons to be excited for the making of and release of Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' which will star Dwayne Johnson and looks to be a go project. Some reasons for being excited about this might be meaner than others, but regardless the news today is that the film has a release date: August 8, 2014.
Garry Marshall's 1894 comedy-drama 'The Flamingo Kid' will be our next item on “What's Being Remade Now?” The film, which established Matt Dillon as a leading man in the early part of the decade, has been acquired by Walt Disney Pictures, which in turn has set Brett Ratner to produce via his Rat Entertainment company.
'Justice League' is heating up in a big way at Warner Bros. Rumors have it that the studio wants the film in theaters in 2015 (where it would compete with 'The Avengers 2') and that the movie will reboot Batman before the new 'Dark Knight' trilogy begins. But who will direct 'Justice League?' Ben Affleck formally turned down the offer and the Wachowskis are rumored but today we may have two new candidates. And they make not make you very happy.
Brett Ratner is a studio director, through and through -- all high gloss and commercial action, no soul. And now that's even more apparent with his admission -- nay, proclamation -- of how much he loves product placement. Because of course he does.
