Mattel Films: "Masters of The Universe"

Mattel Films, firmly taking control of their toy properties, in partnership with Columbia, will produce a new 3D, live-action feature based on "Masters of The Universe", with Art Marcum & Matt Holloway writing a new screenplay, after years of scripts and directors being rejected for not living up to the brand's billion dollar potential:

Filmation's original "He-Man: Masters Of The Universe" (1983) cartoon series, created to sell Mattel toys, was inspired by author Robert E. Howard's "Conan The Barbarian", airing 130 syndicated episodes, starring muscle-bound 'He-Man' defending 'Eternia' and the secrets of 'Castle Grayskull' from the evil forces of fan favorite 'Skeletor'.

The series was followed in 1990 by "The New Adventures of He-Man".

"...during the aftermath of a 'Great War', the 'Sorceress of Castle Grayskull', aka 'The Goddess', gave 'Prince Adam', son of planet Eternia's 'King Randor' and the earthling 'Queen Marlena', his super powers.

"Adam would hold aloft the 'Sword of Power',

Iron Man screenwriters to script Masters of the Universe movie

After launching its own film division last year, Mattel has now enlisted screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holoway to write a new draft of the long-planned Masters of the Universe movie, based upon the classic 80s toy line.

Marcum and Holoway recently penned the script for Sony’s Men in Black: International, while their past credits include Iron Man and Transformers: The Last Knight.

A new Masters of the Universe movie has been in the works for over a decade now, having passed through the hands of numerous writers and directors, including John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda), Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2), McG (Charlie’s Angels) and David S. Goyer (Blade: Trinity).

Aaron Nee and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers) are currently attached to direct the movie, having boarded the project last year. A release date of December 2019 has been set for a while now,

The New Masters Of The Universe Film Will Be Written By Iron Man Writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway

For years Sony Pictures has been trying to get a new film adaptation of the classic 80s animated series He-Man and The Masters of the Universe off the ground.

They’ve had so many filmmakers attached to the project over the years, but for one reason or another they just haven’t been able to get the film into production.

As of right now, brothers Adam and Aaron Nee are still set to direct the film. They previously made a little indie film back in 2015 called Band of Robbers. Now, there are two new writers who have been hired to help write the script. Those writers are Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, who have written the films Iron Man and Men in Black: International.

The previous draft of the screenplay was written by David S. Goyer, who has worked on several of the DC movie properties.

According to a new report, should Matt Holloway and Art Marcum close their deal, they'll be the latest to take a stab at Masters of the Universe. David S. Goyer penned the previous draft. It isn't clear at the present time if Holloway and Marcum will be doing a rewrite, or if they are going to be starting over from scratch.

‘Iron Man’ Scribes in Talks to Rewrite ‘Masters of the Universe’ For Mattel Films
Iron Man” screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum are in talks to rewrite “Masters of the Universe” for Sony Pictures and Mattel Films, individuals with knowledge of the project tell TheWrap.

The duo most recently wrote “Men in Black: International” for the studio.

The project was previously written by David S. Goyer, who is also an executive producer. Aaron and Adam Nee are set to direct the project.

Set on the planet Eternia, the story follows a warrior named Prince Adam, who turns into the heroic He-Man and battles a villain named Skeletor out to conquer Castle Grayskull.

‘Masters Of The Universe’ Movie: Art Marcum & Matt Holloway To Write New Draft For Sony/Mattel Films
Writers Art Marcum & Matt Holloway are in final talks to write the new draft of Masters of the Universe, which Adam Aaron Nee will direct.

Pic is based on the bestselling He-Man toyline from the 1980s that spawned an animated TV show and a 1987 feature from Cannon Films starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man; back in the day it made over $17 million at the domestic box office. He-Man is a muscular medieval kind of guy who is trying to ward off the nasty Skeletor and his dark armies as both good and evil fight for control of Castle Grayskull.

Currently, Masters of the Universe had a release date of this year on December 20, but getting an event production of this magnitude up and running will take time. So it’s quite conceivable we could see that release date move into 2020.

Like Barbie, He-Man is a prized franchise for Mattel. However, after

Adam Sandler's Wedding Singer Returns for an Epic Goldbergs Crossover
The Wedding Singer stands as one of Adam Sandler's best movies of all time. And it has plenty of fans from all over the world who love the 1980s throwback. They'll be pleased to know that Robbie Hart is making his triumphant comeback on the small screen next week. Adam Sandler will appear as the 80s prominent Wedding Singer in an all new episode of ABC's The Goldbergs.

A teaser for this The Goldbergs episode was revealed today, and it promises one of the most epic crossovers the show has ever done. It doesn't exactly feature Adam Sandler reprising his role as Robbie Hart alongside his true love Julia Sullivan, played by Drew Barrymore. Instead, it actually brings Lainey Lewis and Barry Goldberg into The Wedding Singer itself, cutting them into the climactic end of that fan-favorite comedy, and making them a true part of The Wedding Singer canon.

He-Man won’t appear in Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

If you were hoping to see Princess Adora teaming up with her twin brother Prince Adam in a future episode of Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, then I’m afraid we have some rather disappointing news for you as showrunner Noelle Stevenson has ruled out the possibility of a guest appearance from He-Man.

“He-Man is not really on the table for this iteration of She-Ra at all,” said Stevenson during an interview with Inverse. “It would be a challenge, I think, to bring He-Man to life in the present day. Even more so than She-Ra. He’s a very iconic character. It’d be a lot of fun to incorporate him into the world of She-Ra, but I don’t know what my what my approach to that would be.”

More rumours of troubles in the Dceu, Avengers: Infinity War trailer makes Kevin Smith cry and more – Daily News Roundup

Issues In Warner Bros Affected Justice League

With all of the production issues Justice League clearly had, many fans have wondered why Warner Bros. didn’t just delay the movie and wait until it was right. Well according to a new report from The Wrap – so do take this with a pinch of salt – Warner Bros. executives needed to get the film out in order to get their bonuses for the year. WB president Toby Emmerich and CEO Kevin Tsujihara “wanted to preserve their bonuses they would be paid before the merger [with At&T],” and were concerned that “if they pushed the movie, then their bonuses would have been pushed to the following year and they might not still be at the studio.” Hmm.

Someone missing from Justice League was Iris West, played by Kiersey Clemons, who was set to reprise that role in Flashpoint. While
