When it was announced that there was going to be a Masters of the Universe remake, we sniggered in disbelief and were convinced that it would never materialise. However, as time has gone on, the Masters of the Universe movie has become more and more a realistic possibility. Now, Jon M Chu, who is lined up to direct the project, has revealed how he has read the script for the film and is very excited.
Chu told Celebuzz, “I read the script and I was blown away. I had no idea what to expect but it was such a fresh, unexpected approach I was immediately intrigued. I never expected to connect on a human level to a MOTU movie but I really plugged in emotionally. That alone, got me excited to see what we could do with the property.”
He added, “We’re just going to play for the next few months. Play with designs, play with the characters, try new things, maybe go too far on some things and pull back. The process is really important to find where the right line is so we can land right on it. I think that’s what can dig out the properties full potential for a cinematic rebirth”
There is currently no official release date set for the Masters of the Universe film and they have yet to cast any of the characters but this latest news gives hope to the project and we could see a Masters of the Universe movie sooner than we think.
