News hit last summer that Jon M. Chu had been chosen to take on the reboot of 'Masters of the Universe,' which previously had been made into a rather terrible movie in 1987 starring Dolph Lungren.

‘Star Trek 3′ Rumor: ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Director Jon M. Chu Eyed to Helm

Ever since J.J. Abrams signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' it's been unclear whether he'd be available to return to the directing chair for 'Star Trek 3.' With Paramount angling for a 2016 release, and Disney pushing to get 'Episode 7' in theaters in 2015, there's no way Abrams could do both. But it looks like Paramount is looking at a replacement, and Jon M. Chu is supposedly at the top of their list.

How exactly do you make a 'Masters of the Universe' movie? How do you take a franchise where the main character is named He-Man (He-Man!) and make a movie that audiences will actually take seriously enough to give it the time of day? That's the big challenge for director Jon M. Chu, who is knee-deep in developing the project following the success of his 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' but who says he is "really, really excited" for He-Man.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' was rumored to have a troubled post-production, which made director Jon M. Chu (who at that point was best known for directing 'Step Up' sequels and a Justin Bieber documentary) look out of his depth. The film turned out to be a huge success, so it's not surprising to hear Chu's the current frontrunner for directing duties on 'G.I. Joe 3.'

When his last film was delayed for nine months so it can be post-converted to 3D, and it's made public that the movie has huge problems, you wouldn't expect Jon M. Chu to work again anytime soon after the headaches of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation.' But it looks like Sony has him in talks to bring 'Masters of the Universe' back to the big screen.
