The new live-action film version of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe entitled “Grayskull” has been canceled at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Latino Review.
The studio apparently gave executives at Silver Pictures a short list of A-list directors they would consider making the film (eg. Doug Liman, Bryan Singer) and most passed.
The few remaining up and coming directors who were keen however weren’t comfortable enough for Warners to go with.
Another reason is that two executives who were championing the project at Silver Pictures left the company last month.
Justin Marks penned the script for the property which was well-reviewed online.
