Grayskull greatness?

06.04.2008

He-Man That crazy Latino bastard El Mayimbe from over at "Latino Review" recently got his hands on Justin Marks' script for GRAYSKULL: MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE and loved the living hell out of it. In fact, he describes it as "LORD OF THE RINGS meets THE MATRIX and a little BATMAN BEGINS thrown in for good measure." What's so damn good about it, you may ask? Well, for starters, it takes the world of He-Man seriously with none of the camp or delicious cheese of the Dolph Lundgren version to be found anywhere. There's also what seems to be a great melding of fantasy and science fiction (a la the Jim Caviezel starring OUTLANDER, though who knows when the hell that one's gonna be released). And from what Mayimbe writes, the story itself seems like a pretty damn good epic adventure. Will it actually happen, though? Tough to say at this point. Fantasy hasn't really been breaking box office bank of late so any studio will be reticent to spend a lot of money to fully realize what seems to be a very epic story. Check out the script review over HERE.

Why is it so hard for them to call it by the original name: "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe"..?!

I really hope a Masters of the Universe movie gets made. Fantasy movies might not be making a lot of money anymore, but anything from the 80s is! Like Transformers. So, I hope some hollywood exec smartens up and makes this!

Younger people who didn't watch he-man as kids will want it to be funny. If you watched it as a kid though and were a big fan it wasn't funny.

Agreed. Maybe we can get Bay in there and add a few masturbation jokes and some peeing.

What??

Maybe i'm losing touch but this sounds terrible. It needs to be funny and for kids. It's he-man. It's a cartoon there was no dark verison of heman like batman. There was no The dark he-man strikes again. It needs to fun for the whole family and it needs orko.

Haha, that pic is hilarious!! I could dig a He-Man movie, as long as they don't put the words HE and MAN in the title.

What is more likely to effect the production of this movie? The failure of fantasy movies lately? Or the success of the similar fan base driven Transfomers?

Sounds pretty impressive in scope. The thing I remember most about the characters (I never saw the movie) was it was He-Man who first made me fall in love with the villains of Saturday Morning Cartoons.
