Sony Pictures has been trying to get the film production of Masters of the Universe off the ground for years! YEARS! Well, it’s finally happening. The movie will start shooting this July in Prague. The new comes from Production Weekly, who reports:

Masters of the Universe is set to be directed by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee. They previously made a little indie film back in 2015 called Band of Robbers. They will direct from a recent script written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, who have worked on films such as 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. He’s still attached as a producer.

After all of these years reporting on this movie, it’s a little weird to see that it’s really happening now! While there have been versions of the film in the past that I would have loved to see get made, like the one that  Justin Marks wrote over a decade ago. His version of the film was called Grayskull, and It was as epic as The Lord of the Rings.

I really hope that this version of the film that is actually getting made turns out to be great, because it’d be a shame if it turns out to be a mediocre movie. Here’s a description of the story that has surfaced:

   King Randor will be presented as the great warrior-king of Eternia, a descendant of the Grayskulls, and the father of two sons: Adam and Keldor! As the film begins, Keldor is the chosen heir to the throne and his brother, Adam, is young, unfit and a bit of a black sheep. Where Adam’s relationship with his father is strained, Keldor is the epitome of a perfect son, beloved by his father…until the fate of Eternia is put on the line. With his kingdom on the line, Randor puts his people first, betraying Keldor, inciting the series of events that leads to him becoming the iconic Skeletor!

   The film will follow the meek and uncertain Adam as he assembles a group of heroes to take on his fallen brother and his collection of cronies. As you might expect, some familiar faces will be joining Adam in the fight.

I wish the directors the best of luck as they move into production on the film, and I hope that they end up delivering a great movie!

Do you think they’ll pull it off?

Unlikely that this will be good.  Best of luck to them though.
