As we reported back in November, "Kung Fu Panda" co-director John Stevenson was set to helm the live-action version of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe."
Well now, it's official!
Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver are moving full steam ahead for the fantasy-adventure film!
The first draft of the script was written by Justin Marks based on a story he developed with Neil Ellice.
Toy-branded film properties are hot right now! The new "Transformers" film called "Revenge of the Fallen" opens in June 26, and "G.I. Joe" is set to debut in theaters Aug. 7.
Both toy-franchises, like "He-Man" began as toys! Don't lie, you had one, or maybe all 3 of these toys. What will be the next toy-based film? Hhhhmmm, "Barbie?"
And do you guys remember the 1987 campy film starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, and the great Frank Langela as Skeletor?
If you haven't seen it, go rent it! It's good for a few unintentional laughs here and there!
