Kon-Tiki star Tobias Santelmann has joined Brett Ratner's upcoming Hercules film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Santelmann will play the lead villain in the film, a character named Rhesus. Santelmann's character is described as "a golden-locked barbarian and revolutionary" who will go toe-to-toe with Dwayne Johnson's Hercules in the movie.

Hercules also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and John Hurt. Rounding out the main cast are Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsų Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie.

Based on the Radical Studios graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars," the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos. President Barry Levine of Radical Studios is a producer and Executive VP Jesse Berger is an executive producer on the film.

Hercules will land in theaters on July 25, 2014.
