Sony’s live-action He-Man movie closes in on a director…

January 23rd, 2016 by Marc Comments


As Sony Pictures continue to try to get the He-Man movie made, it looks like they’re closing in on a director.

The (second) live-action version of the 1980s cartoon series could be directed by… McG.

Yup, the director of Charlie’s Angels and Terminator Salvation may bring Prince Adam, Skeletor, Castle Greyskull and the residents of Eternia to the big screen.

This movie has been in development hell for years, so we’re not holding out for this to be a done deal anytime soon, but we’re holding on to the belief that McG may have a great movie in him. It might even be He-Man.

It’s likely that Sony are looking to hire him as he was the one who brought Charlie’s Angels back with them.

What say you all? Is McG the man for the gig? Let us know.

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….
