He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie moving forward

January 13th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It seems the Masters of the Universe movie is finally gathering momentum!

Word on the nerdvine is that Men in Black: International writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are set to write and Band of Robbers brothers Adam and Aaron Nee are still directing.

The movie is, of course, based on the 80s famous aniamted series and toyline form Mattel, He-Man and the Master of the Universe.

It’s a franchise that has been fighting to get off the ground for a number of years with directors including Charlie’s Angels’ McG attached to direct.

Of course He-Man and the gang were brought to the big screen in 1987 by Dolph Lundgren while Skeletor, the most evel, em, skeleton in the universe, was played by Frank Langella.

And that’s all we have. But we’ll say this: If there’s one franchise that could give us a perfect blend of swords, sorcery and fun in the age of Game of Thrones and the MCU, it’s He-Man…

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….
