Paramount and MGM have announced the casting of Golden Globe winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes and Oscar nominee (and general legend) John Hurt are all joining WWE star turned movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in  the upcoming film Hercules directed by Brett Ratner.

The film is set to start production in May, and is based on Radical Studio’s graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Producers are Beau Flynn, Barry Levine and Brett Ratner; executive producers are Peter Berg, Sarah Aubrey and Jesse Berger.

HERCULES marks the reinvigorated MGM’s second original project, in addition to the previously announced film THE MACHINE with Vin Diesel scheduled to begin production later this year. The studio has several films slated for release this year including  CARRIE with Sony’s Screen Gems due October 18 and THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG set for December 13th 2013.

Hercules should hit cinemas in August, 2014.

Channel 5 News – My Oscar Predictions re-visited

1 Mar

Award season might be over, but I managed to receive a burst of award buzz back through my door as the lovely people at Channel 5 News sent me a copy of my Oscar predictions appearance last Friday. I managed to score a hat trick (not the previously thought 2/3!) which made watching it even better, so if you missed it last week, then here I am (at about 2:21mins) chatting all things Oscars with the fabulous James King. Enjoy!
