Report: He-Man Movie Close To Happening, Shortlist Of Potential Directors Includes Joe Cornish, Rian Johnson And More

prince adam cheeseball bullshit John M. Chu is out, but an even more intriguing shortlist of directors are now up for grabs for the planned live action adaptation of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, according to a new report from Schmoes Know.

Those guys, who have been pretty spot on lately in regards to fanboy property news, report that Sony have been meeting with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Andy Muschietti (Mama), Kirk DeMicco & Chris Sanders (The Croods) and Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street) about potentially taking the director’s chair. Terry Rossio is writing the script.

Masters of the Universe was not one of my beloved childhood cartoons, but I would watch anything Cornish, Johnson or Lord & Miller do, so this is a pretty awesome list that I’m betting fans of the franchise would be happy with too.
