Kellan Lutz's Hercules film has been renamed.

Summit Entertainment has announced that Hercules: The Legend Begins will instead be released as The Legend of Hercules.

Since acquiring the distribution rights to the Renny Harlin-directed film earlier in the month, it has also shifted the film's Us release from February 7, 2014 to January 10.

Set in ancient Greece, Hercules is betrayed by his king, who steals his lover and sends the warrior into exile.

Sold into slavery, he must embrace his heritage as the son of Zeus to seek justice and revenge.

Scott Adkins, Gaia Weiss, Liam McIntyre, Liam Garrigan, Johnathon Schaech, Roxanne McKee and Rade Serbedzija will also star in the film.

The film released a new trailer earlier in the week.

The Legend of Hercules will arrive in the UK on August 8. Watch a trailer for the film below: »
