‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Hires ‘Men in Black: International’ Writers to Rewrite Script

Jan 11, 2019

Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have been tapped to pen Sony Pictures and Mattel Films’ “Master of Universe” reboot. Brothers Adam and Aaron Nee are directing.

Mattel Films is partnering with Sony Pictures on the feature film. The film is based on Mattel’s toy-line that spawned an animated TV series (1983-85) as well as a 1987 film. The property centers on the warrior He-Man, the last hope of a magical land called Eternia. Dolph Lundgren starred in the original film as the title character.

The previous draft of the screenplay was written by David S. Goyer, who is also an executive producer. Goyer was originally in talks to direct, but later declined from the position.

The movie reunites Sony with the writing pair who recently finished “Men in Black: International.” Holloway and Marcum’s additional credits include “Iron Man” and “Transformers: The Last Knight.” MIB: International releases on June 14 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Liam Neeson.
