Masters of the Universe Movie is back on after Columbia Pictures / Escape Artists picked up the rights after Warner Bros dropped the project last year. I love He-Man and the Masters of the Universe show and would like to see a big screen adaptation. If you have not watched He-Man then check it out streaming online here. Mike Finch and Alex Litvak pitched their concept for the project and are now building it from the ground up.
“attempted to balance a treatment that would convince the studio it was cinematic and keep the toy company satisfied that its characters were being portrayed appropriately”
I hope that they bring in J. Michael Straczynski for a consultant on this project. It was in large part his brilliant writing that made the original show so great. The movie would benefit greatly from his contribution.
Mike Finch known for being a writer on Predators.

Predators does not release until 9 July 2010 so we don't have any completed projects to really get a feeling of their style from.
I never thought He-man could look so good. I admit, I was a huge fan when I was a kid, and I even saw the live action movie, and the Secret of the Swords in the theater. There are times when I still feel like Orco.
