Despite the antics of Brett Ratner and his excommunication from the statement of the awards ceremony, "Oscar", his project for the transfer of the graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" is still alive and well and even attracted the attention of Dwayne Johnson. The actor is thinking over the offer to play a major role.
