He Man - Justin Marks Interviewed

Justin Marks who is in charge of writting He-Man script has recently given an interview to the magazine ToyFare.

5 points from the interview:
1. Justin Marks wants to reboot He Man story like it has been done for Batman with Batman Begins
2. He Man is likely to be a trilogy
3. The story is fairly close to the original: the villain is still Skeletor and the plot still goes on on the planet Eternia
4. "He-Man is sword-and-sandals meets science fiction": Science-fiction and fantasy will be balanced
5. They won't take a wrestler as He Man

Sounds like Justin Marks is really involved in this project and will try his best to give us a great movie. Great !

He-Man is going to kick Skeletor's ass again ! But this time in a movie !

Do you remember He-Man? Yes, you know the bodybuilder hero who fights against his nemesis Skeletor ! Guess what: it's going to be adapted to cinema :-)

Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver are working with Mattel to turn "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" into a live-action film, reports Variety.

He-Man was born as a Mattel action figure, and the toymaker created an animated series in hopes of selling dolls. The series became a cult favorite, but the brand was hardly helped by its first big screen incarnation, the campy 1987 flop Masters of the Universe that starred Dolph Lundgren as the title character and Frank Langella as his nemesis Skeletor.

The franchise has been reimagined by the producer and the writers and pitched to Mattel as a classic good vs. evil battle, using the kind of visual effects strategy employed in 300. A warrior is touted as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.

Many of the characters will be informed by the mythology created in the four different cartoon series done since the 1980s.
