That's right. In summary it says that, after a bit-part in 007's View to a Kill and a much bigger role in Rocky IV, the 'blond Swede' is now going to get his first starring role as He-Man, the hero of the Masters of the Universe franchise which is so popular in the USA, in a production for Golan-Globus' Cannon Group.

It adds that: "the film will offer the opportunity for Dolph to return to the big screen in a role which requires muscle."

Was his He-Man role announced in the spring of 1986?

Thanks!
Yes, they made their initial approach to him in late '85 after Ed Pressman saw him promoting ROCKY IV (not even sure he had seen the film) and his attachment was first announced publicly in circa February 1986 (right before or the day Cannon hosted a big party in their new buildings).

My pleasure.

So the announcement of his He-Man role must have been made at this party - with Dolph pictured alongside Manahem Golan of Cannon/Golan-Globus.
The image is dated to February 1986.

One of the very few interviews Dolph gave for the release of SHOWDOWN (and just about to start filming UNISOL), which you can also read translated in Italian on the link below.

Also announcing PENTATHLON which indeed dates back to 1991, whereas it only made it before the cameras in the summer 1993 (after many rewrites)...

(notice how "Black Belt" thought it was appropriate to say "Bruce Lee's son" without even calling Brandon Lee by name)

Cult French magazine Starfix had two yearly specials on SFX in late 1987 and 1988. This one covered MASTERS based on the in-depth behind the scenes article from Cinefex.
