"He-Man" at Joel Silver's Service



Joel Silver is going to produce "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" for Warner Bros. Pictures with Justin Marks writing the screenplay.

Being abandoned for months after getting ditched by Fox 2000 last year, finally there is a flicker of hope to see "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" really come to the big screen.

Variety has brought in great news reporting that the project will take shape under the care of renowned producer Joel Silver with Justin Marks penning the script for Warner Bros. Pictures. Name to play the lead role has not yet been cast.

Silver, who runs both Silver Pictures and DarkCastle Entertainment, has produced a number of hit movies throughout his career, including "Lethal Weapon" series and "The Matrix" trilogy. Meanwhile, Marks is currently attached to pen for several big screen adaptations like "Street Fighter", "Voltron", and a prison movie centering on Green Arrow, "Super Max."

As for the flick's story, hatched by Marks and co-producer Neil Ellice, it will contain the basic premise presented in the animated TV show version, which centers on a warrior who is touted as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor. Many of the characters in the Middle Earth-like universe will be informed by the mythology created in the four different cartoon series done since the 1980s.
