The Masters of the Universe movie has yet again switched writers in what seems like a never-ending revolving door.
Sony Pictures has been trying since at least 2012 to get a reboot of the Masters of the Universe off the ground. Directors have been switched numerous times, but currently, the Nee brothers are in the driver’s seat. However, it seems they wanted a new script, so they’ve turned to an in-demand pair for the job.
A recent report indicates that Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are in talks to make a new pass on the story. They’re just off of the Men in Black International script, so they’re already comfortable at Sony.
The big question here really has to be why this film seems so hard to crack. There is plenty of source material to get a working idea from, and so long as you don’t go to Earth and focus on characters there, you should be in good shape. The 1987 film is like a blueprint of what not to do, so you’ve already got a foot in the right direction.
Still no word on when Sony is even remotely thinking about trying to get this film out into theaters.
