In Brett Ratner's upcoming movie "Hercules: The Thracian Wars", the titular demigod will bring a helmet along with him to the battlefield. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson confirms it with the release of another teaser image which gives fans a first look at the protective gear. " 'Become the man you were born to be' - Hercules," he captions the Twitter photo.
Before unveiling the look at the helmet, "Fast and Furious 6" star Johnson revealed to his more than five million followers a costume he got to wear for the Hercules role as well as a place to be used in one of the scenes. "Our HERCULES set created by award winning designer Jean-Vincent Puzos w/ great detail. I sit in awe," the actor gushed.
The Greek hero will be featured as a mortal with a fearsome reputation instead of the son of Zeus. He will face off against a golden-locked barbarian and revolutionary named Rhesus, the villainous role that is confirmed to be nabbed by "Kon-Tiki" actor Tobias Santelmann.
Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos provide the script for the Paramount Pictures project, which is slated for a July 25, 2014 release.
Rufus Sewell and Ian McShane are on board for supporting roles.
