    Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures have hired newcomer Evan Daugherty to write the latest draft of Grayskull, the studio's big-screen take on Mattel's "Masters of the Universe" cartoon and toy line. John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) is attached to direct the adaptation.

    Warner Bros. sees the big-screen version as a gritty fantasy and reimagines Prince Adam as a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.

    Justin Marks wrote the previous draft.



    Now.....seriously....wtf?

    You know...before Transformers, He-Man was my thing. It was fun for what it was back then, a mix of science and sorcery, with those elements working together not competing with each other. Then the 200x He-Man TV series was a nice modernization of the old, with alot of new backstory to flesh out the characters.

    Now where in the hell is this plotline coming from?

    Those are very vague details. I'll wait to bash it when I hear more.

    Exactly. No script, no real direction, no cast, nothing. the only thing I gather here is that this is the fourth attempt at getting this movie made.

    I think He-Man should be about a guy that makes websites and drinks Diet Pepsi, who stays up too late and falls, hitting his head, and waking up in the magical land of Eternia. There'd be lots of swearing.

    There are only two things I care about in a He-Man movie:
    1) The casting of Evil Lyn and Teela
    2) How accurately their costumes are recreations of the original cartoon versions.

    Yeah I agree about the new series. That show came out the same weekend as Armada, and He-Man did with the old show what I had wished Armada would have done with Transformers, reinvented it with style.

    Why connect it to earth yet again? Masters should take place only on Eternia.... and they need to get rid of Adam all together.

    d00d! Did you ever get the DVDs?
    Great stuff there.

    Actually, that could work if it was actually a ruse to give all the magic power to Skeletor.

    What the hell did I ever do to you?

    The movie would match the character designs better if 'Prince Adam' was the stage name of a male stripper at a Vegas lounge called 'Eternia' where he dances with his stage tiger.

    Optimus Slege is my hero. Nothing will top the Dolph Lundgren epic, so why even try.
