John Woo is no longer attached to helm "Spy Hunter" and "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe."
It certainly will take a longer time for moviegoers to see both "Spy Hunter" and "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" on big screen as director John Woo has been claimed to no longer be attached to the projects, so CanMag.com has reported. The site also added that Woo has shifted his focus on making films back in his native Asia instead, causing the uncertainty of the future of those two movies consequently.
However, there seems to be a flicker of hope in "Spy Hunter" side for the flick's producer Adrian Askarieh has convinced that the project is still in development despite Woo's departure. "Spy-Hunter has not been shelved permanently," he stated. "We are in talks with a great writer/director to take over 'Spy-Hunter' and will be making an announcement shortly. 'Spy-Hunter' is alive and well."
Both intended to be live-action film features, "Spy Hunter" is based on a Midway's popular arcade game in the '80s while "He-Man" is originally an American animated television series produced by Filmation based on Mattel's toy line Masters of the Universe.
