Earlier this year, reports emerged that Noah Centineo was in talks to spearhead Sony’s long-gestating Masters of the Universe reboot. And now, the actor himself has confirmed that, yes, he does indeed have the power.
Speaking to Jimmy Fallon about playing He-Man in the movie, the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star enthused, “Yeah, I’m very excited. That’s quite the opportunity.”
This Masters of the Universe redo has been in development for several years now, with John Chu the first director to sign on for the film. From there, he was replaced by McG, who himself was replaced by David Goyer. The last we’d heard, Band of Robbers’ Aaron and Adam Nee took over the director’s chair last April. Since then, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway have been brought in to work on the screenplay.
Masters of the Universe will follow the story of Adam, Prince of Eternia, who has the ability to transform into the ever-smiling uber-hero He-Man as he battles to protect his world from the nefarious threat of Skeletor. Of course, these bitter rivals have most recently been seen shilling financial products for MoneySupermarket.com…
Sony had previously pegged Masters of the Universe for a December 18th, 2019 release, although the reboot now looks highly unlikely to make that release date.
