New screenplay for He-Man movie

October 13th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Richard Wenk has signed on to re-write the screenplay for a new He-Man movie.

According to Variety, he will join Sony and Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch who have been developing the property. Jon M. Chu is being targeted to direct the film.

Wenk is best known for his work on 16 Blocks, The Mechanic, and co-writing The Expendables 2 with Sylvester Stallone.

The movie will be based on the popular Mattel toy line that originated in 1982 and spawned several animated series along with the disappointing 1987 live-action film which starred Dolph Lundgren.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
