Hercules
A Lot Of People Were Fired Trying To Leak Hercules’ New Look
Hollywood absolutely loves to keep secrets about its biggest upcoming projects, and Hercules certainly qualifies in that category. While Johnson repeatedly Tweeted images of himself from the set of the upcoming action epic, one thing that the production team and the studio decided that they wanted to keep hush-hush was the character’s full look – namely his rocking new facial hair. But just how strict were they on set?

"I would say maybe close to 50 people were fired - crew members - all trying to sneak pictures," Johnson told us, reflecting on his time shooting in Budapest. "So there's that. There's mandate, and we all agreed on that." As for an explanation behind the images that he did send out, the star still wanted to let people in on the movie making process while maintaining an air of secrecy. In that regard, it was thanks to the fact that he has become one of the biggest actors in the world that he managed to get the folks at Paramount and MGM to simply have faith in his social media habits.

"I told the studios...’Hey, what I'd like to do is take the audience and the fans on a journey from beginning to end, because it's such a passion project for me. So from the time I get to Budapest, I'd like to take them on a journey in terms of what my diet is, what my training is and on set too.’ They said, ‘Well, how are you going to do that?’ I said, ‘Well, trust me. Somehow I'm going to do it.’"
