Now that he’s finished terrorizing the Roman Republic, Liam McIntyre has set his sights on invading Hollywood by way of director Renny Harlin’s “Hercules 3D”.
The Aussie actor has signed on to co-star in the film alongside “Twilight’s” Kellan Lutz, who is set to play the musclebound Greek hero. In the film, McIntyre will play Sotiris, “a young army captain who becomes Hercules’ most trusted battlefield companion. After an evil king deceives them, Hercules and the captain are sold into slavery and must fight side by side to earn their freedom.”
McIntyre is coming off Starz Channel’s recently wrapped “Spartacus: War of the Damned”, where he took over the title role after actor Andy Whitfield fell ill and passed away. “Hercules 3D” will mark McIntyre’s first foray into Hollywood, which is ironic since the $70 million dollar budgeted film is set to shoot in Bulgaria this May.
Harlin is directing from a script he co-wrote with Sean Hood and Steve Giulio. This version of the Greek demi-God is not to be confused with the Dwayne Johnson-fronted “Hercules”, which is set to be directed by Brett Ratner this year as well.
Yes, it’s the dueling Hercules movie. Hey, if Snow White can get one, why not Herc? He’s got plenty of muscle to go around.
Here’s a sampling of McIntyre’s work on “Spartacus”:
