Kellan Lutz has met with McG about a role in Masters of the Universe

06.27.2016

Masters of the Universe McG Kellan Lutz Banner

At the start of the year, we brought you word that director McG (TERMINATOR SALVATION, 3 DAYS TO KILL) was in talks to direct Sony's MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE reboot, and it sounds like he has landed the gig, based on a recent tweet by THE LEGEND OF HERCULES and THE EXPENDABLES 3 actor Kellan Lutz. Late last week, Lutz took to his Twitter account to reveal that he has met with the filmmaker and producer Mary Viola about the planned film.

Lutz didn't specify which role he is up for, but the assumption is that he's being eyed to play He-Man. Shortly after the actor revealed he had a meeting about the project, Lutz fan Lisa Davis shared an image of what he'd look like as "The Most Powerful Man in the Universe." Do you want Lutz to play He-man, or would you rather see a different actor in the role?

Sony hasn't set a release date yet for MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, but we should be hearing more about it in the near future since McG has been having meetings about the movie.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

Twilight star + McG = Steaming Pile of Shit.

How does Sony even think that this would be a good combo, oh wait, look at Ghostbusters. It doesn't even matter if they get some 'A' list actors for this project, if McG is attached it will blow.

I'm hopeful Lutz can be a tolerable actor under the right director, and I know McG can do good with the right style of film (I still like Charlie's Angels a lot).
And, again, I could see him as Shazam... More than as He-Man, actually.
Still, I really think that with the right projects and directors Lutz could have a Schwarzy movie future...

MOTU has potential to be a great franchise. Treated with respect , a hint of reality and a sprinkling of 80's fantasy film vibe it would be an awesome film or films. But for that to happen it needs higher quality film makers attached to it. Currently this will sink like the Conan reboot.

Didn't Hercules Suck?

McG sucks, Lutz sucks, their movies suck, this idea sucks. Get rid of both, give this project to Peter Jackson or just forget the whole idea.

The guy has similar physique like He-Man, I give him that, but Lutz can't act.

As has been commented below - I don't know his acting ability but he looks alight.

I too would prefer Chris Hemsworth, but he's also my first choice for Lion-O if a ThunderCats film was to ever get off the ground.

Choice of actor aside I really home the film stays on Eternia (no cop-out Earth story), I want to see a fierce growling BattleCat, scary-ass villains (Skeletor is a must but They could go so creepy with Webster and the like), magical Orko and sorceress... I just want exactly

Choice of actor aside I really home the film stays on Eternia (no cop-out Earth story), I want to see a fierce growling BattleCat, scary-ass villains (Skeletor is a must but They could go so creepy with Webster and the like), magical Orko and sorceress... I just want exactly what was in the cartoons really - but live-action. Concessions will have to be made, but not too many I hope.

Chris Hemsworth...

so obvious, more star power, more expensive too...
I doubt many people will pay for a Kellan Lutz movie... no disrespect.
and McG directing, oh boy...

"Do you want Lutz to play Bob, or would you rather see a different actor in the role?"
'Bob' as in 'bob hairstyle'? Honestly that's the only bob I can think of that relates to He-Man.

As to whether Lutz would be good in the role - I've no idea what he's like as an actor, but he looks the part, yeah.
If they do a faithful conversion of the look of the cartoon to live-action, this could be a genuinely cool film - though obviously there's plenty that could go wrong with it.
