The shortlist of directors for the new Masters Of The Universe film has some interesting candidates on it...

Plans remain afoot to bring back He-Man to the big screen, in a reboot of Masters Of The Universe. Previously, the project had Jon M Chu attached, although he's now committed to making another G.I.. Joe movie for Paramount.

Since then, the likes of Rian Johnson and Joe Cornish have been linked to the film, although it seems that news of their involvement was very premature. Because the shortlist it seems is now down to four, and their names aren't on it.

The four directors on the shortlist are Mike Cahill, Jeff Wadlow, Harald Zwart and Chris McKay. Cahill was the man behind the impressive Another Earth, whilst Wadlow helmed last year's Kick-Ass 2. Harald Zwart successfully rebooted The Karate Kid, and Chris McKay was the man who edited The LEGO Movie.

Sony is expected to pick its director of choice in the next month or so. Then we can movie on to finding out who's going to be the new He-Man. We'd best prepare our audition tape. After we've eaten this muffin, though...

The Wrap.
