Second Hercules Movie Green Lit: Millennium's HERCULES 3D Bowing First

Millennium has tapped Renny Harlin (DIE HARD 2, CLIFFHANGER) to direct their version of the Greek demigod in HERCULES 3D which is being positioned to be the first of two Hercules movies to be released in 2014.

If you will remember, Dwayne Johnson has been inked to star in HERCULES for Paramount and MGM. Their release date is August 8, 2014 while Harlin is aiming for March 2014.

Harlin says: "It's not a comic book, cartoony fantasy thing. It's closer to Gladiator than flying horses."

And he comments on the competitive productions: "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."

Budget for HERCULES 3D is believed to be in the $70m range. No word on native 3D vs. conversion yet. More when I get it!
