Less than a month after Mattel put the end to plans to make a live-action He-Man and The Masters of The Universe movie at Warner Bros., the project is alive again at Sony. That's the power of Grayskull for you.
Mattel pulled the rights to the toyline from producer Joel Silver less than three weeks ago, but have already set up a new deal with Sony Pictures that'll see an all-new script and direction courtesy of Knowing and The Taking of Pelham 123 producers Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch's Escape Artists production company. As long as we get to keep Orko, I'm happy with whatever they come up with.
