Sony bosses still found a new overlord for Hi-Men, and, apparently, the power of the Gray Skull was not without. The studio has been trying to implement a new version of "Masters of the Universe" for almost ten years, but each time the work on the project did not go beyond the search for a director or screenwriter. As the portal The Wrap found out, now David S. Goyer is preparing to head the shooting of the remake.|
According to the source, Goyer is not only negotiating to take the director's chair for the future film, but also wrote the last version of the script. His predecessor was McG, but news of his possible appointment had surfaced almost two years ago.
Now Goyer has to breathe new life into the franchise, which began with the Mattel line of toys, released back in the 80s. It was followed by an animated series and a feature film starring Dolph Lundgren as Prince Adam, capable of transforming into the fearless warrior of Hi-Man. Together with his friends, Adam defended the planet Eternia and the secrets of the Fortress of the Gray Skull from the encroachments of the villain Skeletor.
Perhaps one of Goyer's most impressive screenplays is Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. David also wrote lyrics for such blockbusters as "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." As for his achievements in the field of directing, they can hardly be called outstanding: Goyer directed the films "Blade 3: Trinity", "Invisible" and "Unborn", as well as a number of episodes "Moments of the Future" and "Da Vinci Demons".
Sony plans to release new Masters of the Universe in December 2019.
