I don’t now if i should be excited or concerned, heck its the new reign of the 80’s cartoons. First Transformers, now He-Man,the thought of it being any reminiscent of Dolph Londgren’s HE-Man makes me shiver. The Variety article sheds some light on the project.
Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver are working with Mattel to turn “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” into a live-action film.
Justin Marks is set to write the script. Silver will produce.The franchise has been re-imagined by the producer and the writers and pitched to Mattel as a classic good vs. evil battle, using the kind of visual effects strategy employed in “300.” A warrior is touted as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.
Looks promising especially with Joel Silver producing. Lets hope its good this time around.
