Who will direct the MOTU?
Sony Pictures and Escape Artists are trying to find the right craftsmen to bring the Masters of the Universe to life on the bring screen. Here is the short list of directors: John Chu (GIJoe: Retaliation), Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), Chris McKay (The LEGO Movie editor), and Mike Cahill (Another Earth).
Despite GI Joe: Retaliation not being completely terrible, none of these directors get me excited for the project except Mike Cahill. Another Earth was an incredible cinematic experience, but it was on the low budget side. When you are tackling He-Man and Eternia, the budget is going to go through the roof!
Terry Rossio who penned the The Lone Ranger has written the most recent draft of the Masters of the Universe. Again, not really a guy that gets me excited either. I’m all for a He-Man movie, it just doesn’t look like it is off to the right start. If we have to look at the bright side, at least Brett Ratner nor Stephen Sommers are attached to the project.
