Scott Adkins To Play A King In HERCULES 3D

Sad screenfighting fans of martial arts action star Scott Adkins who have been hoping for the fourth installment of the continuing saga of the boxing-turned-kickboxing/MMA prison tournament drama franchise, UNDISPUTED, have something much bigger to look forward to in the year to come thanks to an announcement forwarded by Martial Arts Movie Junkie. The recent news involves the 3D release of Renny Harlin's fantasy action adventure, HERCULES 3D starring rising new action hero Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga, Arena, Java Heat, Tarzan).





From SCOTT ADKINS FANZ:

Some fantastic news regarding Scott's new film, which will be "Hercules 3D" directed by Renny Harlin who did Cliffhanger & Die Hard 2. It will be one of many lead roles and Scott will play King Amphitryon. Myths are that During Amphitryon’s absence, Alcmene (Hercule's mother) became pregnant by Zeus, who disguised himself as Amphitryon, when he visited her; she then became pregnant again by her real husband upon his return. Of these unions were born twin boys, of whom Iphicles was the son of Amphitryon, Hercules the son of Zeus. 

The film is the latest of a series of films slated to star Lutz as he continues to earn his stripes becoming one of the latest faces of a new era in blockbuster Hollywood cinema. The film is based on a seperate concept of the original source material apart from the August 2014 release of the Paramount Pictures/MGM production, HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and directed by Brett Ratner.

Currently, HERCULES 3D is shooting in Bulgaria with Nu Image/Millenium overseeing the film's production, which is being shot by Ross Clarkson. Lutz and Adkins are joined by actor Liam McIntyre who replaced the late actor Andy Whitfield for the television series, SPARTACUS. The film is slated for a March 2014 release.

Scott Adkins is also appearing in the upcoming releases of two new martial arts sequel action thrillers, NINJA 2 from director Isaac Florentine, and James Nunn's latest MMA installation, GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS 3: UNDERGROUND.

Stay tuned!
