Dwayne Johnson could be giving a hero's welcome to the role of Hercules.
The former wrestler-turned-actor is said to be in talks to portray the Greek god in Warner Bros' forthcoming epic adventure, reported Variety.
The movie, based on the Radical Comics graphic novel, will follow Hercules as he prepares his crew, after being hired by the King of Thrace to face battle.
Directors Brett Ratner and Peter Berg were previously linked to take control of the film, which was earlier known as Hercules: The Thracian War.
However, it could be a while before work starts on Hercules, because Dwayne 'The Rock' is set to start work on Michael Bay's Pain And Gain, before returning for the sixth instalment of the Fast And The Furious franchise, Fast Six.
