I am – Hercules!!
“Hancock” director Peter Berg, who created “Friday Night Lights” (which features an obnoxious Texas guy in a wheelchair named “Herc”), now plans to direct Universal's “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” from a screenplay by somebody named Ryan Condal.
It’s based on a five-issue Radical comic book series by Steve Moore ("Tom Strong's Terrific Tales"). (Radical is the same publisher behind “Caliber,” which is being developed as a directorial effort for John Woo.)
Berg is also developing a remake of "Dune" for Paramount.
