Noah Centineo, the young “The Fosters” star who was everywhere last Summer with lead roles in Netflix’s coming-of-age romantic dramas “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,” is in talks to take the lead role of He-Man in the “Masters Of The Universe” reboot at Mattel Films and Sony Pictures.
“Iron Man” and “Men in Black International” scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have penned while Adam and Aaron Nee (“Band of Robbers”) are directing the property 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.
DeVon Franklin, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce the film currently slated for a December 20th 2020 release. Centineo will soon appear in Sony’s “Charlie’s Angels” reboot with his work there said to be the big reason he’s up for He-Man.
