Do You Think Maybe the He-Man Movie Might Not Suck?


The long-gestating live-action film version of beloved '80s cartoon series He-Man has found a director in Kung Fu Panda helmer John Stevenson. The He-Man movie — which also now has the title Masters of the Universe — will mark Stevenson's live-action directorial debut, and apparently he came on board for the project when he visited the Mattel headquarters and "was shown into a secret lair that contained the visuals created by the toymaker staff." According to him, "There was this locked bunker that you had to be escorted into. It was filled with art, some generated by the Mattel artists, and I looked around, and said, 'I get it.' We started formulating a specific vision for costumes, creatures, architecture, and the creation of a mythology and look for a whole world we'll create."

So, there's a vision of some sort here. . . right? Kinda? It might not be totally ridiculous and embarrassing? Personally, I think as long as they don't put a blond pageboy wig on Brendan Fraser and call it a day, I'll give this project the benefit of the doubt for now.

Still, I've said it before and I'll say it again: We've gotten Transformers and we're getting G.I. Joe and He-Man. Why is it all so much boy stuff? As long as we're on this ride, where is my Jem and the Holograms movie?
