Exclusive: Four decades after Dune scribe Frank Herbert published his acclaimed 1972 novel Soul Catcher, the book has been optioned for the big screen by producer Dimitri Villard. The Flight Of he Navigator and Once Bitten producer first pursued the Herbert tome during the 1980s but tabled his film career to run music company ArtistDirect until last year.

This week we'll see the first film focusing on the mythological Greek hero Hercules with Kellan Lutz taking the lead in The Legend of Hercules (formerly known as Hercules: The Legend Begins).

For anyone who might not be convinced, one final trailer has popped up as a last ditch effort to get audiences into theaters Friday, and if you're interested enough to look behind the scenes, there's a featurette too.
