Dolph as He-Man in Masters Of The Universe

The Masters Of The Universe are heading back to the big screen in live action form. And a director may just have been found...

This one seems to have been chugging along for a while now. We're on about the latest attempt to mount a live action version of Masters Of The Universe. Granted, for a generation of us, Dolph Lundgren was He-Man. But as he gets set to blow more shit up imminently in The Expendables 2, Sony is pushing for a new Masters Of The Universe movie.

And it seems to be pressing ahead with the project a little more urgently, too. Jon M Chu, who directed Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and the delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation has reportedly entered talks to direct the new film. While this hardly means the movie is suddenly just around the corner, it does suggest that progress is being made, and that Sony is now actively pursuing getting the project made.

More on Masters Of The Universe, then, as we get it. Casting ideas, anyone?
