By the Power of Grayskull - He-Man Movie Confirmed!
Everyone's favorite Matrix trilogy producer Joel Silver is working with toy manufacturer Mattel to turn He-Man and the Masters of the Universe into a live-action film. You may remember the first attempt to turn it into a live action movie, a little 1987 film titled Masters of the Universe with Skeletor? Apparently the pitch involves just a classic good vs evil battle using the kind of visual effects that were in 300, and interesting choice to focus on, I am guessing which takes off of the huge success of 300.
For those unfamiliar with the popular 80's animated TV series and toy line, it's about a warrior named He-Man and his friends who defend the land of Eternia and the secrets of Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor. Like Transformers, it started as a toy line and became a bigger hit when it launched into an animated TV series. Given the pop culture references that are hitting recently, with a few in Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz, it may actually make a comeback and could be a hit. No details on when production will start or when we'll see the movie, but we'll be the first to update you once we know more.
