Hercules, which is currently in pre-production, will star Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes and Rufus Sewell. It is currently scheduled for release in July 2014 from Paramount and MGM.

Filming will take place in Budapest, Hungary in the coming months. Peacocke will return to his role as Home and Away's Brax in September.

Peacocke said today: "This is an incredible opportunity for me to experience film on a massive scale, work with a world-class director, actors and two of the biggest studios in the world. I'm grateful [Australian broadcaster] Seven is allowing me time out to get a taste of that world."
