Hercules is based on a screenplay by Ryan Condal, adapted from the Radical Studios graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.

Evan Spiliotopoulos has provided revisions to Condal's screenplay, while Beau Flynn, Barry Levine and Ratner will serve as co-producers, Deadline reports.

Johnson, who was confirmed for the project earlier this year, recently signed up for another graphic novel adaptation in the shape of Barry Sonnenfeld's Lore.

Hercules will enter production early next year.
