Aaron and Adam Nee (“Band of Robbers”) have been set to direct the He-Man movie “Masters of the Universe” for Sony Pictures and Mattel. The film remains on track for a December 2019 release.
Based on the beloved Mattel toyline and iconic 1980s animated series, the story follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. As He-Man, Adam becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.
David Goyer penned the script and while he’s had to pass on directing, he is reportedly extremely involved in the development of the film. DeVon Franklin, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce.
