Avi Lerner's Millennium Films is setting up a big screen features about mythological Greek hero Hercules with Sean Hood penning the script.
The success of epic saga "300" on the box office apparently has triggered a new flow in Hollywood film industry. Variety has revealed that a film feature about Hercules is about to be made at Avi Lerner's Millennium Films.
Based on the mythological Greek tale, the project has already got its script delivered by "Halloween: Resurrection" scribe Sean Hood yet the logline is being kept tightly under wraps. Meanwhile, Lerner, Boaz Davidson, Danny Dimbort, and Trevor Short are all set to come onboard as the producers.
The greatest of the Greek hero, Hercules, or Heracles in Greek, was the fruit of the affair Mount Olympus ruler Zeus had with a mortal woman named Alcmene. Many popular stories were told of his life, the most famous one being "The Twelve Labours of Heracles" which follows the hero as he was directed by the Oracle of Delphi to serve King Eurystheus for twelve years.
