Despite many delays, the long in development Masters of the Universe reboot from Sony Pictures and Mattel finally has a set release date.
Sony Pictures has set a March 5, 2021 release date for its fantasy adventure, Masters of the Universe, which Noah Centineo will lead as the most powerful man in the universe. Production on the film begins in August in Prague, Czech Republic.
Masters of the Universe is based on the highly successful He-Man toy line, which served as the basis for the highly popular animated series (1983-85), as well as a 1987 film starring Dolph Lundgren as the title character and Frank Langella as the villainous Skeletor, as they battle for the castle of Grayskull.
Aaron and Adam Nee are set to direct the Mattel Films production from a script rewritten by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The Nee Brothers also get a screenwriting credit. David Goyer remains an executive producer on the project.
