Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson could end up showing off his muscles as a super strong Greek hero in an upcoming epic movie directed by "Tower Heist" helmer Brett Ratner. According to Variety, the professional wrestler-turned-actor is in negotiations to star in MGM's "Hercules", tackling the part of the titular demigod.

Screenwriter Ryan Condol has been attached to pen the script. Meanwhile, MGM's Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman are all on board as the producers along with Peter Berg, Sarah Aubrey and Barry Levine.
