El Mayimbe at Latino Review has been a big cheerleader for the 'He-Man' live-action redo that's been kicking around Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures for several years.
Now, it appears that the project is all but dead. They guys who were shepherding the film for Silver have moved on to other positions in the industry, which has reduced the energy that they've been able to throw behind the project. Further, the studio had very specific demands for a director they would entrust such an ambitious project too, and the top directors on the list passed.
Is this the end of a live-action 'He-Man' redo? Not hardly. But it does mean that the film will languish in development hell for several more years, until the studio finds the right creative voices to bring forth a vision they can bank on.
What do you think? Do you want to see a new He-Man movie? Who should direct it? Who should play the title role? Post your comments below...
