"It takes more than a good physique to portray the most legendary, mythological personality in history — and Kellan has exactly that, personality," Renny Harlin told The Hollywood Reporter.

"He's not afraid to explore the strengths and vulnerabilities of the character, and he impressed me with his passion and heart."

The movie will reportedly shoot in May in Bulgaria. Congrats, Kellan!
