With a new live-action Masters of the Universe movie long in development, it looks as if Noah Centineo may be the one who has the power.
Courtesy of The Wrap, the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess is a Loser actor is believed to be in talks to play He-Man in the upcoming reboot. Centineo is co-starring in the Charlie’s Angels reboot, and it’s suggested that his performance in that redo is the main reason why Sony is looking to have him take the starring role in their new Masters of the Universe.
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 this past 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.
