It’s been some time since we’ve gotten an update on the new ‘Masters of the Universe’ movie, which ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ director Jon M. Chu was once attached to direct. Earlier this year, Columbia Pictures brought ‘Kick-Ass 2’ director Jeff Wadlow in to rewrite the script and possibly even direct the film. Just three days into the new year, Columbia has revealed that Wadlow’s script is complete, putting us one step closer to a new ‘Masters of the Universe’ movie.

I Origins’ director
Mike Cahill were being considered to helm the project.

Originally adapted for the big screen with 1987’s memorably wacky ‘Masters of the Universe,’ the classic story follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into the warrior hero known as He-Man to combat the villainous Skeletor.

Although his ‘Kick-Ass’ sequel wasn’t that well-received, Wadlow is also attached to adapt Marvel’s ‘X-Force’ for an upcoming film at Fox, which he would also direct—if so, Wadlow likely wouldn’t have time to direct ‘Masters of the Universe.’ There’s no current release date set for the film.
