Paramount Pictures has announced that director Brett Ratner’s Hercules will hit theaters on August 8, 2014. The film is an adaptation of Steve Moore’s graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, which paints the popular character with a darker tone. Dwayne Johnson is set in the title role as “a mercenary who turned his back on the gods following the loss of his family, ‘finding solace only in battle.’” Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens on August 1st is the only other film slated for release in August of 2014. With a firm release date set, production on the film should get underway later this year.
