"Lone Ranger" Writer Hired for He-Man Movie "Masters of the Universe"

"Lone Ranger" Writer Hired for He-Man Movie "Masters of the Universe"Submit Comment
Jon Chu (GI Joe: Retaliation) was on board to direct the upcoming He-Man movie "Masters of the Universe," but has decided to drop out. But now comes word that Columbia Pictures is not giving up on the film.

According to THR, Terry Rosio, the writer of "The Lone Ranger" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," has signed on to write a new script for "Masters of the Universe," which is based on the popular 1980s Mattel toy line and at one point was called "Grayskull."

Hiring Rosio means that Columbia wants to give the project a serious shot. Whether such characters as He-Man, Skeletor and Man-at-Arms will look good on the big screen has yet to be seen. But since the movie has been in the works for a decade is a clue that the studio has been worried about the film's box office potential.

I'm guessing alex missed the 80s movie starring Dolph (which actually wasn't that bad imo).

Frank Langella was the best thing about the '87 HE-MAN.
