G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer, John M. Chu, is no longer attached to direct a big screen version of Masters of the Universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
However, the project is still alive with Terry Rossio, who recently worked on Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, signing on to rewrite the current screenplay.
The project, which was formerly known as Greyskull, has gone through writers such as Richard Wenk (Expendables 2) and the team of Michael Finch and Alex Litvak, (Predators), before going to Rossio.
Based on the popular Mattel toy line that originated in 1982, Masters of the Universe was turned into a live action film back in 1987 starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man.
