The He-Man movie is coming

If you're a true child of the 80s then you'll probably count He-Man as one of the most important male figures in your life.

With his combination of heroism and hedonism, he showed that saving the world from evil could be rewarding as well as fun. Take that Bruce Wayne.

You'll probably be as excited about this then as we are.

Talks are currently underway to secure GI Joe 2 director Jon M. Chu for the proposed big screen update of Masters of the Universe. The live-action film has been in development for a while but it's looking like it might now happen very soon.

The script, originally titled Grayskull, will follow Prince Adam who is transformed into mega-hero He-Man who fights to save his world from the evil Skeletor.

As you'll, hopefully, be aware we've already seen He-Man on the big screen once before in 1987 and you can see how unspecial effects used to be right here:
