Twilight’s Kellan Lutz may have just landed his breakout role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lutz recently signed on to play Hercules in Nu Image/Millennium’s upcoming Hercules 3D.
Renny Harlin, director of the Greek epic, said, “[Lutz] is not afraid to explore the strengths and vulnerabilities of the character, and he impressed me with his passion and heart.”
As of yet, there are no plot details or hints on how Hercules 3D will differ from Paramount’s Dwayne Johnson-starring Hercules coming out in august.
Harlin also co-wrote the film with Sean Hood and Giulio Steve. Les Welden and Danny Lerner are producing the $70 million movie which is scheduled begin shooting this May in Bulgaria.
