By the power of Grayskull, a new screenwriting team has been hired for the Masters of the Universe movie! Mike Finch and Alex Litvak are the scribes in question, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which says their addition “signals the project is being rebuilt from the ground up.” Apparently, Mattel took Masters of the Universe away from its last studio home due to creative differences.
I was a big He-Man guy once — when I was, like, three years old. Had the action figures and everything. Now, though, when I hear “By the power of Grayskull,” my first thought is Hot Fuzz. A feature-length motion picture about those toys I used to play with in the ’80s? Frankly, we’ve been dubious since this was first announced a year ago. Then again, I guess I’m not the target demo for this movie anymore. How about you?
