Sony Pictures & Escape Artists Short-List 3 Directors For 'Masters Of The Universe'

Reported by Outsiders - 2014.02.27

Sony Pictures and Escape Artists are looking over a short-list of directors to take over the 'Masters Of The Universe' project originally to be helmed by Jon M. Chu before backing out of the deal. Both studios are looking at the likes of Mike Cahill, Chris McKay and Harald Zwart with Zwart being the top contender as he has directed Sony’s reboot of 'The Karate Kid,' which made the studio some impressive money. He has also directed Sony's 'Pink Panther 2' and 'Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' for Screen Gems, which is owned by Sony.

Sources are claiming that Cahill would be an intriguing choice, as he’s made his mark on 'Another Earth' and 'I Origins.' This project would represent a major leap for Cahill in terms of scope and budget, though he has proved he can create snazzy visuals with minimal funds. McKay has the most momentum despite the fact that he has yet to direct a studio movie. McKay served as the editor of “The Lego Movie,” as well as its animation supervisor/co-director.

The most recent draft of the script is done by Terry Rossio and has the movie 'Set on Eternia, the story follows a blond warrior named Prince Adam who turns into the heroic He-Man and battles a villain named Skeletor out to conquer Castle Grayskull.'
