About Kellan Lutz
http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-new ... ry-w438572
The hunk, 31, told Us that he’s dying to play comic-book and ‘80s cartoon character He-Man in the upcoming movie remake of 1987’s Masters of the Universe. The original film starred Dolph Lundgren as the buff hero of Eternia.

“DeVon Franklin, he's a producer over at Sony, he’s an amazing man and he let me know that they’re creating The Masters of the Universe a couple years ago and I was thinking that would really top off every dream I’ve had in the industry,” the Hercules actor told Us of his dream role. “I met with McG, who is the director of it, [and] they’re working on the script and I’m just kind of playing with it. … So hopefully when they finish the script I have a chance to audition for it.”

Lutz has been campaigning for the role for awhile now. In June, the actor tweeted about his meeting with McG, teasing fans about the film and his potential role.

Art director Naeim Khavari on one of the previous versions developed:
Once upon a time ago I was asked to help develop a new look for the He Man movie (that is still trying to be made). The director wanted to go for a more tech approach to his sword and "armor", more sci-fi than fantasy. it's been long enough that I can throw it up for ya'll to see. And yep I had to use @chrishemsworth as reference. That's what they wanted at the time :)

Kinda looks like the 2002 figure...

Masters of the Universe Movie Begins Shooting This Spring?
http://omegaunderground.com/2018/01/10/ ... ion-start/
It was recently announced that Sony Pictures has hired David S. Goyer (Blade, Batman Begins, Man of Steel) to direct and co-write their Masters of The Universe (He-Man) remake. A new live-action feature project that has been bouncing around different studios and was in various stages of development over the years.

Omega Underground has now learned that Sony is eyeing Masters of The Universe to begin filming around April.

Up-and-coming studio screenwriter Lindsey Beer had been writing the most recent version of the script. Beer has been working on mostly bigger movies with Choas Walking, Godzilla vs Kong, and Barbie. She is also part of the Star Trek writer’s room for the Quentin Tarantino project.

A location hasn’t been named but we’re hearing Europe is a strong possibility to be the home base of the fantasy film production. Sony started branching out there recently with The Crow Reborn shooting in Budapest, Hungary.

We currently don’t have production dates for the film.

Sony has given the fantasy film the release date of December 18th, 2019 but we expect it’ll move out of the way of Star Wars: Episode IX.

Some fans have been pushing the idea of Dolph as Skeletor (better than a cameo as the king or someone like that), but if they start filming MOTU in April as anticipated, he would likely not be available for more than a cameo... Otherwise, even if the material is not his cup of tea, he'd sure have a blast chewing the scenery with a character like Skeletor...

I wouldn't mind a story where He-Man becomes Skeletor, it's like those antagonist characters that are so opposite they're actually the same (like Hook is actually another version of Peter Pan and vice versa), one being the other side of the coin, one in the light, the other in the shadow, they can't exist without the other...

After "development hell", pre-production hell: David S. Goyer leaves the directorial reigns whereas the new MOTU movie is still set for release on December 18, 2019
http://variety.com/2018/film/news/maste ... 202692790/
‘Masters of the Universe’ Still Needs Director as David S. Goyer Passes (EXCLUSIVE)

“Masters of the Universe” is still in the hunt for a director, Variety has learned. Sony Pictures, the studio behind the He-Man movie, had been in talks with David S. Goyer, but the filmmaker and screenwriter has had to drop out because of other commitments.

Goyer turned in a draft of “Masters of the Universe” last fall that excited the studio so much that they hoped to convince him to slide behind the camera. However, Goyer is enmeshed in work on “Foundation,” a mini-series adaptation of Irving Asimov’s science-fiction trilogy, and won’t be able to juggle both projects. Complicating matters is “Masters of the Universe’s” Dec. 18, 2019, release date, which puts a clock on the production. Before Goyer fell out, Sony had been getting ready to talk to actors about joining the film.

Goyer will stay involved on “Masters of the Universe” as an executive producer and screenwriter. “Masters of the Universe” is based on a Mattel toyline and popular children’s cartoon. It centers on mythical fantasy world in which Prince Adam battles with the villainous Skeletor as his heroic alter-ego He-Man.


Goyer is best known as the co-writer of “Batman Begins,” “Dark City,” and “Man of Steel.” “Foundation” is being backed by Skydance Media and overseen by Josh Friedman.

Sony is currently meeting with other candidates to direct the film and still believes it will make its release date.
