Summit Renames the Hercules Film Starring Kellan Lutz

Summit Entertainment didn’t acquire the distribution rights to director Renny Harlin’s “Hercules” film until earlier this month, but since then two major changes have been made. The film was originally announced as a February 7, 2014 release, but then three days later Summit said it would be coming to theaters on January 10, 2014 instead. Earlier this week, the new trailer was also released still with the title “Hercules: The Legend Begins,” but now that has been changed to The Legend of Hercules. You can watch the trailer with the new title below.

The film stars Kellan Lutz as Hercules, the mythical Greek hero, demigod and son of Zeus. Betrayed by his King and sold into slavery, Hercules must use his formidable strength to fight for his freedom and return to his true love, Hebe, the Princess of Crete (played by Gaia Weiss).

The supporting cast includes Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2), Liam McIntyre (“Spartacus”), Liam Garrigan (“Strike Back”), Johnathon Schaech (“Ray Donovan,” “The Client List”), Roxanne McKee (“Game Of Thrones”) and Rade Serbedzija (“Red Widow”).
