The Nee Brothers (Aaron and Adam Nee) will be at the helm of the Masters of the Universe movie. They will replace previously-attached David S. Goyer (Krypton, Blade: Trinity, The Dark Knight). Goyer is still credited as a screenwriter and executive producer on the movie, which is based on the popular 80s toyline from Mattel.
Masters of the Universeis based on the popular Mattel toy line, and spawned several animated series (including the spin-off cartoon series,She-Ra: Princess of Power), along with a 1987 live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor. The main premise of the series revolves around the conflict between the heroic warrior He-Man and the evil Skeletor on the planet Eternia, with a vast line-up of supporting characters. Masters of the Universe takes place in a hybrid setting of medieval sword and sorcery and sci-fi technology.
Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing the film. Mattel’s Julia Pistor will executive produce on behalf of the toy company.
