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:

    Masters of the Universe
    THE FRIST MOVIE WAS NOT THAT BAD, FOR 1987. IT WAS A LIL TO KID FRIENDLY BUT THAT WAS THE PIONT.
    NOW IM A FAN FROM WAY BACK AND THE ORIGINAL TOY CONCEPT, WITH HE-MAN AND SKELETOR BOTH HAVING POWER SOWARDS AND THE BATTLE TO POSSESS THEM BOTH.HAS FOR THE LAST CARTOON IT WAS GOOD AND IT DID SOME THINGS BUT ADAM HAS A 15 YEAR OLD JUST DIDNT WORK.IN THE MINI COMICS ADAM WAS A WOMANIZING ROYAL BORE, AND LAZY THIS IDEA WORKS BEST IN A MOVIE, I THINK.
    I THINK IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THE BEST MASTERS MOVIE ADAM MUST BE A GROWN MAN, THE KELDOR BECOMING SKELETOR WORKS FANTASTICLY, ALSO HIM BEING A MEBER OF A ETERNIAN RACE WORKS ALSO, BUT MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT HE-MAN BE A BODY BUILDER Roland Kickinger HE-MAN MUS BE PHYSICAL IMPOSING

    so whats up is their going to be a new he-man movie or what? what is taking so long to get the project started?

    If your going to make this movie you have to go back to basics. It must take place on Eternia how about where they filmed Lord of the Rings or Finland people from those places are really big. Must have Battlecat Stratos She-Ra and what about He-Man origins and some charachter building instead of bringing all of the ppl out at the same time. This could be a very lucrative trilogy perhaps they could film all three films at the same time like Lord of the Rings that was a Great movie series hope it kicks off soon . If i have to Wait another year or so it will be all the better for us fans.
