The studio had decided two weeks ago to move the U.S. release for the film forward a month to Jan. 10, where the actioner will be the only new wide release. “The Legend of Hercules” is opening six months before Paramount opens “Hercules,” starring Dwayne Johnson.
“The Legend of Hercules” is directed by Renny Harlin from Daniel Giat’s screenplay and will be released in 3D and 2D nationwide. The origins story will track Hercules as he’s betrayed by his king, sold into slavery and fighting for his freedom to return to his true love, the Princess of Crete (played by Gaia Weiss).
