Good film or bad film, wherever you fall on the subject I absolutely loved the 1987 “Masters of the Universe” film, starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man. While I am immensely fond of that film, even today, there were things lacking in that movie. However, the filmmakers didn’t have the time, money, or leeway to include Eternia, Battle Cat, She-Ra etc. So the news of a reboot of Masters of the Universe, the cartoon and movie I grew up with as a child always appealed to me.
The new film project has gone through development hell for about a decade. Countless writers and directors have come and gone but the most recent news will hopefully put us one step closer to getting a new film, sooner rather then later. ” Today we can confirm that a fresh Masters of the Universe screenplay draft has been finished by writer/director Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2).” If you take the fun and adventure of the original animated series, coupled with the 2003 reimagined animated series, and the current DC Comic book series you will have the power to create a great film and franchise!
