'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz plays the mythic strongman in his first stint as a leading man in a feature film for 'The Legend of Hercules,' the trailer for which places him smack dab in his own origin story. But will the hunky actor with racks on racks on racks of abs be able to flex his acting muscles in the driver's seat?
Kellan Lutz made a name for himself by playing the chiseled vampire in 'The Twilight Saga,' but now he's ready to unleash his new character, that of legendary strongman Hercules in 'Hercules: The Legend Begins.' The star released a brief snippet from the official trailer, to be released in full during New York Comic-Con, but just a tad more exciting is that he revealed himself in costume on the set of 'The Expendables 3' in the process.
Just when you thought Brett Ratner's 'Hercules' starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was the only Hercules movie out on the market, in steps Renny Harlin who's found his own Grecian strongman in Kellan Lutz for a rival big-budget flick. It makes sense if you think about it -- what better way to attract a huge audience than with a shirtless 'Twilight' heartthrob?
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.
