This is certainly good news. When they announced the “He-Man” movie a few days back (read here), I wasn’t sure if it would work. Then again, I kept having flashbacks to that crappy Dolph Lundgren version, where the characters got zapped to Earth by some magical tunnel or wormhole or some other half-ass way. Today Variety had a write-up on the deal, including the proposed plot of the movie, which goes something like this: “A warrior is touted as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and a despotic ruler named Skeletor.”
And oh yeah, “He-Man” version 2.0 would look and use the same technology as Zach Snyder’s “300”.
Justin Marks is currently working on the script. Joel Silver is producing.
