“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” reboot star Noah Centineo has confirmed a rumored report from last month that he’s going to play He-Man in the upcoming live-action “Masters of the Universe” reboot at Mattel Films and Sony Pictures.
Appearing on The Tonight Show last night, host Jimmy Kimmel asked him straight up about the He-Man rumors to which he responded: “Yes, yeah, yeah, yeah. I have an affinity for being in my underwear, I don’t know what it is… Yeah, I’m very excited. It’s quite an opportunity.”
“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 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 which is slated to open December 2020.
