The upcoming live-action film “Hercules” will hit theaters Aug. 8, 2014. The film will be based on the comic series by Steve Moore and Cris Bolsin. The film will star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Brett Ratner is directing.

I’ve never read the comics, but it appears the film is going more of the “300” route here.
