He-Man Masters of the Universe Live-Action Movie Part Deux

18 Comments

They already tried it once, with Dolph Lundgren as the lead, in 1987. Except that movie was craptacular, not least of which was the decision to go by the title “Masters of the Universe”, with “He-Man” nowhere in the title. Hey, if you’re going to adapt something, don’t shy away from the name. If you’re too embarrassed to call your movie “He-Man”, why are you spending millions of dollars to make it in the first place? Anyways, uber producer Joel Silver and Warner Brothers are back at work on a new “He-Man” movie, says AICN. I wonder if Dolph is busy…

Right now, though, we’re seeing a revival of all the things that were important to “˜80s kids, and for a while now, we’ve been hearing rumors that HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE would be one of the properties getting the big-budget treatment. Remember when John Woo was supposedly doing it? Since then, I’ve seen Adam Rifkin’s name attached to it for a while, and IMDb hilariously had M. Night Shyamalan listed as the writer for a brief period.

However, I can tell you today exclusively who IS writing the film: Justin Marks.

If you don’t recognize the name, you will soon. Justin’s the guy who is writing SUPERMAX, the Green Arrow in prison movie that David Goyer is producing for Warner/DC. He’s also writing bigscreen versions of VOLTRON and STREET FIGHTER. So basically, Justin Marks is the most gainfully employed professional fanboy on the planet right now.

I still don’t see it. He-man? Then again, who would have thought “Transformers” could ever come to the big screen? What I wanna know is, is She-ra coming along for the ride?

Anyways, let’s hope it looks better than this:

    NEW ACTOR FOR HE-MAN.

    This there will be no Dolph Lundgren,this time Matrix producer Joel Silver will
    be producing the remake of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
    Adam Rifkin will not be involved on the writing credits for the film this time Justin Marks will helm the script,Brad Pitt was set to play He-Man which it was false none like Chris Showerman,Paul Walker and Triple H were rumoured it’s
    all false.
    So will Australian actor Travis Fimmel come backe to US to play the role as He-Man? We don’t know at the moment,maybe he could play the role as Silver would sign him up to play He-Man.
    This is just an idea ok but the movie will not be like that crappy 1987 Masters of the Universe movie with Dolph Lundgren as He-Man,it will be a restart.
    Thanks.

    I’m an He-man and the masters of the universe fan for so many years that I’ve forgot how it is not being it. I was disapointed with the first film as all He-man fans but I bought the ransformers DVD a few days ago and saw it for the first time and WOW!! I couldnt imagine it better. I only wish they remake he-man with that kind of power! Mabe with a more dark side story and less child-kind script. I wish this new He-man movie exceed all hower expectations like transformers did.

    All fans have the power!

    Man i use to love He man. Mater of fact im going to get a tatto of him on my back. I would love for the movie to be as good as transformers that would be awesom. Man that would be great and i think Triple H would do a good job, but you cant go wrong with Brad Pitt either.
