Director shortlist for Masters of the Universe revealed

Harald Zwart, Chris McKay, Mike Cahill and Jeff Wadlow are in the running to direct the long-gestating “Masters of the Universe” movie.

The Wrap reports that Zwart (“The Mortal Instruments : City of Bones”), McKay (“The LEGO Movie”) and Cahill (“Another Earth”) are on Sony/Columbia’s frontrunners-list for the top-job on their film adaptation of the ’80s toy-line/cartoon. While Justin Kroll tweeted that “Kick-Ass 2″ helmer Wadlow is also up for the job.

Terry Rossio wrote the most recent draft of the script, which initially had “G.I Joe : Retaliation” helmer Jon M.Chu interested in directing.

It’s gotta be said, boy have we come a long way since the days of John Woo directing the movie, hey!? *slap*
