The upcoming film - which will be written by Man of Steel's David S. Goyer - was previously set to set to be helmed by Charlie's Angels' McG. According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, things have now changed and the director is no longer attached to He-Man and instead Sony is meeting with directors to find a replacement. However, the director has since dropped out, and the studio is looking for a new filmmaker to step-in as we speak.
The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film.
The film is based upon the Mattel 80's toyline which spawned several animated shows, notably of course He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, along with the 1987 live-action film Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man. Now, if you were a fan of the original cartoon or the toys, this should come as some pretty awesome news.
