The trend of tweeting from the set seems to have become a routine matter. Actor/wrestler Dwayne Johnson has not come up short concerning his tweeting on “Hercules: The Thracian Wars.” Now, fans can get a glimpse of this week end’s events. Director Brett Ratner along with Johnson will be shooting an extensive battle sequence in Budapest, Hungary. The picture carries this message,
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 women 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 stars Dwayne Johnson, Rebecca Ferguson, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Irina Shayk, Robert Maillet, Joe Anderson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ian Whyte, Aksel Hennie, Tobias Santelmann, Reece Ritchie and Christopher Fairbank.
