Well, the increased internet interest has prompted Joel Silver and Warner Bros to sign on to develop He-Man and the Masters of the Universe for the big screen. Variety has confirmed that newcomer Justin Marks (who is currently writing Super Max) is penning the script. But this doesn’t man the film is going to happen. Mattel has to formally approve an outline for the project before it can go forward. But considering the gold and glory Mattel will surely see in July from Michael Bay’s live-action Transformers adaptation, I don’t see how they could say no.He-Man is my favourite cartoon back when I was growing up and I really enjoyed the latest cartoon series which came out in 2002 too. I hope the movie tells the story like how the cartoon series did from the beginning, how Prince Adam became He-Man. And if it is done in the style of 300, it will definitely be an awesome movie. Brad Pitt as He-Man? I'll second that!
Apparently the project was pitched as a “classic good vs. evil battle” that would use the same digital filming techniques of 300 and Sin City. The project’s logline follows: “A warrior is touted as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and a despotic ruler named Skeletor.”
