The Wrap‘s Umberto Gonzalez has the latest follow-up on Masters Of The Universe with word that actor Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) is in talks for the title character of Prince Adam of Eternia – a.k.a. He-Man.
Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man, upcoming MIB International) are penning a script rewrite for helmers Aaron and Adam Nee (Band Of Robbers), based on the popular toy franchise from the 70s and 80s.
It was the franchise that spawned a hit animated series centered on a prince who battles the evil forces of Skeletor to protect the castle, Grayskull. A live-action feature film adaptation from Golan/Globus and director Gary Goddard was released in 1987 to cult acclaim with Dolph Lundgren starring.
Escape Artists’s Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch are producing with Julia Pistor and David Voss exec producing for Mattel.
Centineo will next star in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 2, and in Elizabeth Banks’ forthcoming November 1 release of Charlie’s Angels.
