We’ve been anticipating a new update concerning Sony’s Masters of The Universe movie and there seems to be some concrete production news for the science fiction fantasy film, a reboot of the first live-action film from 1987 starring action star Dolph Lundgren that was based on the cartoon and toyline.
ProductionWeekly (via PuruseNews) has revealed the filming on Masters of The Universe is expected to begin on July 15th in Prague and could wrap by October 18th, a slight update from February. Prague has been a location previously used by Sony for Spider-Man: Far From Home and Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot.
We recently talked to lead concept artist on the David S. Goyer incarnation, Carlos Huante, where he revealed the epic scale of his version comparing it to Lord of The Rings and suggesting they could make a trilogy out of the one script. Goyer and Huante eventually exited leading to the hiring of the Nee Brothers, who will direct this newest version of the reboot.
The current draft was being worked on by Iron Man screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.
If a summer shoot is taking place a big casting announcement is on the horizon.
Sony Pictures has set the release date for December 20th, 2020.
When the evil Skeletor (Frank Langella) finds a mysterious power called the Cosmic Key, he becomes nearly invincible. However, courageous warrior He-Man (Dolph Lundgren) locates inventor Gwildor (Billy Barty), who created the Key and has another version of it. During a battle, one of the Keys is transported to Earth, where it is found by teenagers Julie (Courteney Cox) and Kevin (Robert Duncan McNeill). Now both He-Man and Skeletor’s forces arrive on Earth searching for the potent weapon.
