It was announced earlier this year that Sony were going to push ahead with a new Masters of the Universe movie and the wheels were set in motion. Since then, there has not been a lot said about the Masters of the Universe movie, although it appears that progress has been made.
The reason that talk has been so quiet surround the Masters of the Universe film is because the writers have been steadily plucking away at the script. If you remember, Mike Finch and Alex Litvak were initially tasked with adapting the big screen adaption of the 1980’s cartoon classic.
The latest news is that an initially screenplay has been penned for the Masters of the Universe film but that Sony are not completely happy with it. Therefore, they have now brought on board Richard Wenk (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2) to do some rewrite work on the script.
Masters of the Universe is currently expected to be helmed by Jon M. Chu and while there is no talk of who will be playing He-Man in the Masters of the Universe movie, there has been a small rumour that Jason Statham may be involved in the project. Although we doubt very much that Jason Statham in a wig could pull of He-Man.
Who would you like to see in the new Masters of the Universe film?
