Sony Plans Live-Action “He-Man”

Sony Pictures is finalizing a deal with Mattel to get “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” on the big screen says Variety.

The film will revolve around the prince-turned-warrior He-Man and his battles against the evil Skeletor.

The project had previously been set up with producer Joel Silver and a Justin Marks-penned script at Warner Bros., but Mattel took the rights back after years of failed development.

Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will produce the film which will start afresh.
