Kellan Lutz is the Greek Hero in 'The Legend Of Hercules' [Trailer]

Kellan Lutz is still in the infancy of his career, considering how long movie stars can go on for, but he’s already starred in all the Twilight movies, as well as voicing Tarzan in a new animation, and taking the titular role in Hercules: The Legend Begins.

The film sees Hercules uncover his true identity as the son of Zeus. In learning, at the same time that his father isn’t really the dictatorial King, Hercules finds the courage to fight for what his believes in: the future of the kingdom, and the love of his life, Hebe, who has been promised to his brother Iphicles.

The film is directed by Renny Harlin, who helmed Die Hard 2, Deep Blue Sea, and Cliffhanger. It comes at a time when another film surrounding the ancient Greek hero is released, with Dwane ‘The Rock’ Johnson taking the leading role. He’s certainly got the physique for it, but which film will have the most depth?

Lutz, obviously, believes his version is truer to the tale. “Our character goes through being lovestruck and then heartbroken and then anguish and loneliness, sadness and remorse. It’s really a story about a man, a man and the journey to get back to his love,” he explains to Crave Online.

“So it’s not a man with super-powers. A man not understanding the strengths that he does have and he’s in denial because he doesn’t believe in gods at first and doesn’t believe that he’s the son of Zeus and just really feels rejected by who he thinks is his father. It’s just really going through the story of what a normal boy would go through and the situation that he’s forced into.”

Hercules: The Legend Begins, which also stars Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, Roxanne McKee, Liam Garrigan, Liam McIntyre Rade Serbedzija and Johnathon Schaech, is set to be released on August 8th 2014.
