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.

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.
