Sony takes on He-Man!

Bad luck for those (like next-big-thing Christopher Showerman – cheque in the mail, bud?) hoping the long-gestating “Masters of the Universe” movie might end up back at Fox2000, under the guidance of John Woo, where it all started. Seems Sony Pictures has snapped up the troublesome project.

The project was previously set up at Warner Bros with Joel Silver set to produce. Silver had recently tapped John Stevenson (“Kung Fu Panda”) to direct a script (titled ‘Greyskull’) by Justin Marks.

According to Variety, and despite previous reports that Stevenson would remain on board, Sony has dumped the director. And since the article uses words like “starting fresh”, Marks’ script would also seem to be no longer being used. In fact, I believe Warner likely owns the script, so Sony wouldn’t be able to use it even if they wanted to.

The project, originally with Fox 2000, looked like it might come to fruition over at the WB. But once they take the project on it barely moved an inch. In fact, it went through several rewrites (Evan Daugherty penned the latest draft of the script; Justin Marks, another), numerous production delays, and ultimately had fans wondering whether the studio did in fact have plans to make it. Mattel and WB didn’t see eye to eye over the direction of the project and made a mutual decision to let the option lapse.
