Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson's Hollywood career continues to skyrocket and he's just been cast not one, but two new features.

The first film he'll be working on is “Hercules” with director Brett Ratner for MGM. That production should start in October. Hercules will be based on the Steve Moore graphic novel. Here's a description:

When the Thracian King summons the Greek hero and his six battle-worn companions to mold the Thracian army into a bloodthirsty, ruthless killing machine, the Son of Zeus rushes to answer the call of war and gold. But within the nation of Thrace lies an epic tale of war, murder, deception, and sacrifice that shows Hercules how far from grace he’s fallen- and what he must accomplish for redemption.

Johnson Will also star in “Ciudad,” an action thriller to be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. The movie is about a black market mercenary (Johnson) who is hired by a Brazilian drug lord to go and rescue his daughter.

You'll see Johnson next in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” this summer.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
