It’s been a flirted-with union for months, but now someone’s plopped a ringer on the finger of it. Dwayne Johnson is set to play musclebound Hercules in a new film from the Greek god of popcorn cinema, Brett Ratner, says THR.

“Hercules”, adapted from the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars”, is a co-production between Paramount and MGM. Here’s hoping the combined profits from “Paranormal Activity 4″ and “Red Dawn” aren’t wasted on something Uwe Boll would wipe the sweat from his chin with.

Peter Berg, who directed Johnson in “Welcome to the Jungle” (aka “The Rundown”) all those years ago, is one of the producers. Wonder he didn’t fight for Taylor Kitsch to play Herc.
