Noah Centineo may soon have the power of Grayskull.

The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before heartthrob is in talks to play the legendary He-Man in the upcoming Masters of the Universe movie, EW has learned. Sony and Mattel Films are overseeing the project, which will be based on the classic Mattel toys that spawned the totally ’80s animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. (A 1987 live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and also starring Courteney Cox was met with less enthusiasm.)

A new Masters of the Universe film has long been in the works, and at one point, McG was attached to direct the tale of Eternia’s Prince Adam, who transforms into a mighty warrior with help from his magic sword. Adam and Aaron Nee are now directing the film and co-writing the new screenplay with Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. (David S. Goyer wrote the previous draft of the screenplay.) Sony had no comment.

Centineo made waves last year as the charming Peter Kavinsky in Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and he’ll soon be starring in a sequel, as well as the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot.

The only question is: How is he going to pull off that haircut?

The Wrap first reported the news.
