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!

Sylvester Stallone is determined to bring back his glory days!
Extra is reporting that the actor is mulling the possibility of yet another "Rambo" movie. This one will be the fifth of the series!
Stallone told Extra:
"Yeah, we are doing another 'Rambo,' but the conflict is whether to do it in America or a foreign country."
He then went on to praise 2008's comeback kid, Mickey Rourke, to say he's so proud of him. Rourke credited Stallone for helping him with his career.
So Stallone gave a shout-out to our favorite "Wrestler" and said:
"Mickey, if anybody deserves an Oscar, it's you. No question about it. You lived it. You earned it. You deserve it. You're an incredibly talented man. It's about time everyone says, 'You know what. Give it to the winner.'"
Aw...what a great Bro-mance!

I sat down with the actor/musician for the upcoming romantic comedy "New in Town" starring Renee Zelwegger.
He's a very sweet man, calm, cool, collected.
We talked about making the film, his character, Ted Mitchell, working with Renee, and shooting the film in deep, freezing cold!
Here you go, and have fun always!

Hogan also talks about working with Renee Zelwegger.
Oh yeah, she also taught me a sentence speaking the good, old Minnesotan accent
Here you go and enjoy!

First it was a John W. Campbell Jr. short story called "Who Goes There." Then, it became a 1951 Howard Hawks film call "The Thing From Another World."
Then, John Carpenter put his own stamp of paranoid horror to the short story in the 1982 flick simply called "The Thing."
Now, Universal is bringing back "The Thing" with a whole new vision! "Battlestar Galactica" executive producer, Ron Moore, is writing the script, and Matthijs Van Heijningen, famous for directing commercials for Toyota and Pepsi among others, is set to helm.
"The Thing" is one of my guilty pleasures, and it brings back my memory as a child entranced with watching horror flicks! So, this is kind of exciting!
