By the Power of Greyskull! It now looks like the long developed reboot of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is finally getting some steam.
Sony has announced a release date of December 18, 2019 for the film, which unlike the 1987 Cannon Films that starred Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor, will be more faithful to the 1980’s cartoon based on the Mattel toy line. So we will get to see Prince Adam and Cringer, who with the Power become He-Man and Battlecat.
McG was at one point attached to direct the film, but he has withdrawn and at the time of McG joining the film, Kellan Lutz of The Twilight Saga, was in talks to play Adam and his powered alter ego. However, that may look unlikely now with McG’s departure. What has been confirmed is that David S. Goyer will be writing the screenplay as a search for a director is underway.
