Last week brought news that Brett Ratner, a director fans love to always come out swinging against, is in negotiations to finally bring to life a new film based on the mythological demigod Hercules for producer Avi Lerner and Millennium/Nu Image, the same outfit who are currently in post-production on a reboot of Conan the Barbarian. However, aside from Ratner's proposed involvement, there really wasn't a whole lot of information regarding precisely what kind of film the X-Men: The Last Stand director would be setting out to make.

After speaking to someone whose close to the project, however, we feel we can shed a bit of light on what kind of a Hercules film Lerner and Ratner are after.
