This from Variety just moments ago:

Dwayne Johnson is in talks to star in MGM's "Hercules," which will be directed by Brett Ratner. Johnson, who currently stars in "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" and will next be seen in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," is currently prepping for his role in Michael Bay's "Pain and Gain." More to come..

And so we wait... :)

The beat doesn't stop for Dwayne Johnson... this would be like the 50th film he's attached to star in, if an agreement is reached. Dude is on overdrive right now. I guess you get while the getting's good; and it's apparently very good for him right now. But damn dude... consider slowing down a bit.

But this is what we'd call no-brainer casting. Of course The Rock is going to play Hercules. It's not like there are many other relatively young, thick-necked, muscle-bound actors in Hollywood who are also *names* who you'd cast in the role.

Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?

I'll leave you with this:

    DJ is the TP of mainstream HWD, and the two will star together in an upcoming film (Take my Wife). Only makes sense. LOL
