McG in talks to direct Masters of the Universe
Based on the Mattel toy line of the same name, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE follows a warrior named Prince Adam who has the power to transform into the heroic He-Man. His nemesis is the villainous Skeletor who seeks to conquer a fortress known as Castle Grayskull in order to learn the secrets held within. That's your set-up, for those unfamiliar, and Hollywood has been working on bringing it to the silver screen for some time now. If the following is to be believed, they may be one step closer.
Deadline is reporting that McG is in talks with Sony do helm the picture. Last we heard, Christopher Yost (THOR: THE DARK WORLD) was taking a break from Asgard to pen MASTERS. If McG comes on board, who knows if they'll stick with that script or start from scratch. As of now, McG is wrapping up the coming of age horror story, THE BABYSITTER, so maybe we'll hear something concrete in a few months' time.
