Director For 'Masters Of The Universe' Reboot?

It appears David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises) is close to signing on to direct the upcoming reboot of Masters Of The Universe.. Earlier this year it was announced that Goyer would be writing the script..

With David S. Goyer now working on the screenplay and maybe directing, it's pretty clear Sony is looking to take He-Man in a more serious darker tone.. The film does not have a cast, at one time it appeared Kellan Lutz was close to being the next He-Man - but right now it's unclear if he is still in the running..

The film is set to hit theaters December 18th, 2019..

The only time He-Man made it on to the big screen was back in 1987, the film has become a cult classic.. But at the time it was a huge box-office bomb, mainly due to He-Man losing most of his popularity by 87 and the film being very low budget... Much of the story takes place on Earth and centers around a couple of teens - The big highlight of the flick was Frank Langella impressive performance as Skeletor..

Cast: Dolph Lundgren (as He-Man), Meg Foster (as Evil-Lyn), Jon Cypher (as Duncan Man-at-Arms), Chelsea Field (as Teela), Billy Barty (as Gwildor), Courteney Cox (as Julie Winston) and of course Frank Langella (as Skeletor)...

1983 animated series story: In a distant and mystical land, wimpy Prince Adam leads the life of royalty. Unknown to all but a few close friends/allies, Prince Adam is actually a hero, the mighty He-Man.
