According to the official summary, Hercules is the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After 12 arduous labours and the loss of his family, the dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods, finding his only solace in combat with his six friends. Eventually, the King of Thrace hires the mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time and it was time for the group of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.
The actor will be starring alongside Aksel Hennie, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane and John Hurt. "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" is scheduled to hit the cinemas on 25 July 2014.
