Earlier this week, we reported that Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger helmer Renny Harlin will direct Millennium Films’ Hercules 3D, which is a different project from the Brett Ratner-directed Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson.
We now have sales art for the film, which has been in development since 2007 and features a script written by Sean Hood and Hanna Weg.
“It’s not a comic book, cartoony fantasy thing,” Harlin said. “It’s closer to Gladiator than flying horses. I think these are very different kinds of movies in their approach to this legendary character. Obviously, Hercules has been portrayed in many different films, such as the Disney animated movie. I wish them luck. Ancient Greek mythology is an endless source of good stories … Let’s see both movies be successful.”
Hercules 3D is set to be released in March of 2014.
