Meanwhile, the screenplay is said to be written by Dave Callaham, and Joe and Anthony Russo will be producing the ‘Hercules’ remake under their production company AGBO. Moreover, there are also rumors saying that Danny DeVito will be returning as the voice of satyr Philoctetes.
During a WIRED Autocomplete Interview in 2022, the 78-year-old American actor and comedian was asked if he will be in the live-action ‘Hercules’. And to that, he answered:
“I am the live-action Hercules. What are you talking about?”
“Philoctetes? If they don’t put me in that they don’t have a hair on their ass,” DeVito further stated.
Despite all of these rumors, nothing has actually been confirmed, and no additional information about the casting has been reported. Guess we’ll just have to wait for official announcements… In the meantime, here are some hot pics of Egerton, showing how Hercules material he truly is:
