Russian model, Irina Shayk is making her big screen debut in Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Dwayne Johnson is playing the Demi-God and Shayk will be playing his wife.
Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.
The film is an adaptation of the Radical Studio’s graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars and it also stars Ian McShane and Joseph Fiennes.
The film is due out on July 25th, 2014.
