Sony’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Will Begin Filming August 19th in Prague
Mattel and Sony’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ reboot will now begin filming on August 19th in Prague, Czech Republic. It may wrap on-or-around November 22nd.
Noah Centineo (‘The Fosters,’ ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’) is in talks to play the lead character He-Man.
The reboot 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.
Moreover, brothers Adam & Aaron Nee (‘Band of Robbers’) are directing. The recent draft of the screenplay is from Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (‘Iron Man,’ ‘Men in Black: International’). However, the Nee Bros. also have a screenplay credit now.
The first draft of the screenplay was written by David S. Goyer (‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ ‘Krypton’). He was originally in talks to direct, but later declined from the position. But, he still remains an executive producer on the film.
The film is currently set to release on December 18, 2019. However, this date is definitely going to change.
