Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.

New trailer for the upcoming film “The Legend of Hercules” starring Kellan Lutz.

If you like 300, Gladiator and Spartacus, this Renny Harlin-directed film will probably be up your thing.  I know I’ll be seeing it 🙂

The Legend of Hercules hits theaters on January 10, 2014.

Another Hercules film – this one directed by Brett Ratner and starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – is also due out next year in July. Haven’t seen so much about that film yet. But I’m betting with The Rock, it’ll be packed on the beef-cake side of things, too.

Kellan Lutz to star in film where homosexuality is the norm

From The Advocate: Kellan Lutz and Camilla Belle will costar in a film as secret lovers in a world in which homosexuality is considered the norm, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the role-reversal drama Love is All You Need, Belle will play a star quarterback (yes – she’s the quarterback) who is adored by a large fan base while Lutz, portrays an aspiring journalist. “The two fall in love, with their relationship growing in secret, but when the romance becomes public, the two find themselves being bullied,” according to THR.

Lutz, who is straight but viewed as one of the most LGBT-friendly actors in Hollywood, discussed his gay fans in a 2011 interview with The Advocate.

“I love them,” he said.” When I meet gay fans out and about, they’re so great to talk to — and I’m big on hugging, because I’m from the Midwest. They’re just so energetic and loving. I’m proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don’t want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too.”
