Though talk of the “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” cinematic reboot has been going around for some time, there hasn’t been much movement on the project in recent years beyond the attachment of McG (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Terminator Salvation”) as director.
Now it seems one actor has used social media to indicate he’s at least met over the film and could be in the running – “Twilight” series actor Kellan Lutz. Lutz just tweeted:
“Hey @HeManTheMovie and all MOTU fans, Had an amazing meeting with @McGsWonderland and @ItsMaryViola talking MOTU. ITS IN GREAT HANDS!”
For those wondering Mary Viola is the president of McG’s production company Wonderland Sound & Vision. A meeting is a long way from even negotiations though, and how many actors McG has met for the film is unclear.
So far there’s been few rumors regarding who’ll play the protector of Castle Grayskull or when the Sony Pictures release will go into production.
