Will He-Man sing and dance in the planned big screen version of "The Masters of the Universe?" Just kidding. I'm sure we'll not see the He-Man and his oh-so-glorious haircut be performing Broadway style anytime soon but Jon M. Chu is in talks to direct the reboot. Chu, of course, is the guy who gave us "Step Up 2 The Streets," "Step Up 3D," and the Justin Bieber concert documentary, "Never Say Never." Sure, Chu also directed the sequel "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," but we won't see that film until 2013, so we can only judge the director based on the "Step Up" films and Bieber.
So far, he's very visual (I love all the 3D effects of "Step Up 3D"), and he has great timing, but that's about it. I still need to see him spread his wings as a storyteller. Don't get me wrong, I've interviewed him before, twice as a matter of fact, and he's always been fantastic! (Here's Chu on "Step Up 2 The Streets," and here he is for "Step Up 3D")
I grew up with the "He-Man" franchise, so Chu, I know you pay attention to fans, so don't mess this one up! Okay?
