Believe it or not, the Masters of the Universe film is far from dead. It may have been in development for some time, but (mostly) writer David S. Goyer is now in talks to helm the film for Sony, TheWrap reports.

This makes a lot of sense since Goyer (who is best known for his work on The Dark Knight Trilogy) did the latest draft on the script, and one would assume that this means that he and Sony are on the same page as far as what is expected of this film.

Like many other films in the Hollywood system, this one has faced setback after setback throughout its long development history. Most recently, Terminator Salvation director McG was on board to helm the adaptation of the Mattel action figures, but he stepped down from the project earlier this year.

The Masters of the Universe film is based on the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe toy line from Mattel. Of course, it’s likely best known for the cartoon series from the 1980s, which has grown to attain a cult following. It was also later turned into a film starring Dolph Lundgren in the role of He-Man.

Do you think David S. Goyer is the right man to bring this franchise to the big screen after all these years? Let us know your thoughts down below!
