Masters of the Universe (Live Action) 2019.

‘Masters of the Universe’: Nee Brothers to Direct He-Man Movie (EXCLUSIVE)

Quote:
He-Man has found new masters.

Sony Pictures and Mattel have tapped the directing duo of Aaron and Adam Nee to helm the He-Man movie “Masters of the Universe,” sources tell Variety.

Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce with DeVon Franklin.

The movie will be based on the beloved Mattel toyline, which spawned a successful animated TV series (1983-85) as well as a 1987 film. The property centers on the warrior He-Man, the last hope of a magical land called Eternia. Dolph Lundgren starred in the original pic as the title character, while Frank Langella played the villainous Skeletor.

The pic is written by David Goyer, who is also an executive producer. Goyer had circled the director’s chair, but prior engagements forced him to pass on directing, though insiders say he is extremely involved in the development of the film.

Sony has already dated the movie for 18, 2019, with exec Matt Milam overseeing it for the studio.

Sony is coming off one of its more successful years, following smash hits like “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” both of which have future installments planned. Though “Masters of the Universe” has encountered hurdles over the years, Sony still views it as a valuable property and hopes to add it to its list of major franchises in the works.

Seem to associate He-Man with Keith Lemon nowadays. Still will be interested if they manage to make something of it.

Well the first movie did end on a teaser. Though that sequel turned into Cyborg.

Would like to see them do it well. If they're not doing the Dolph Lundgren way and keeping him as He-Man the whole time, then I would prefer they have 2 different actors playing Adam and He-Man and don't try going digital.

Probably be a new animated series announced soon then

Is the 1987 film worth a watch?

I say yes. Just don't go into it expecting it to be really loyal to the source material. Does have Lundgren, Monica from Friends, Paris from Star Trek Voyager, Strickland from BttF and Nixon from Frost/Nixon, as well as a catchy tune the key plays that i still find myself humming now and again.

Though i have found out it wasn't received well by everybody.

The 87 film is like a Template for what Thor first film turned out to be

Cena is a budding comedic actor anf it wouldn't surprise me if they actually went down that route with He-man. Which sucks because I don't want to see a Thor knock off.
