"Cinefantastique", 1988

Pyun also cast Kathy Ireland for MASTERS 2?

Albert Pyun got an early draft of what he called a "treatment/screenplay hybrid" that attached editor Rozanne Zingale Oriella sent out to him.
Stephen Tolkin had also worked on the MOTU 2 script...

Pyun, king of recycling, is apparently taking ideas and characters from this for his new project BAD ASS ANGELS...

I recently got the chance to read several excerpts from this 157 pages (!) treatment/screenplay dated November 18, 1987 (before the original was even released in Europe). And "oh boy" how we dodged a bullet here... If some fans were angry at the first film, they would have hated this one even more. Very few characters remained (mainly He-Man, Gwildor and Skeletor), new earthlings were brought, and Pyun was clearly writing his own thing, which reads as a parody of the first film and a weird mashup...

Anyone interested in what one of the ideas for the unproduced MOTU sequel was should check out the episode of the podcast, where I had the privilege of speaking with screenwriter, Stephen Tolkin!

I had never heard of that idea, I wonder how many treatments or script drafts there has been on this one. I had interviewed Tolkin and had dinner with him in Paris a few years ago, he's a very literate person.
