Newcomer Evan Daugherty is set to pen the latest draft of “Grayskull” for Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
John Stevenson (“Kung Fu Panda”) is attached to direct the adaptation of “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” cartoon series and toy line, which followed a blond warrior named Prince Adam who turns into the heroic He-Man.
He and his allies — Battle Cat, Man-at-Arms and Orko — defended their planet Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor, who tries to conquer the fortress Castle Grayskull, which imbued He-Man with his powers.
Justin Marks penned the previous draft which reimagines Adam as a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.
