Sony hasn’t done too bad in the last year with hits like Spider-Man: Homecoming and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Now they are looking to add another name to that list with a He-Man film Masters of the Universe. According to Variety it looks like the film has found its directors, Aaron and Adam Nee.
This film is a great challenge for the Nee brothers. The duo’s 2015 indie thriller Band of Robbers earned critical acclaim and got them noticed by studios. Masters of the Universe is written by David Goyer, who is also serving as the film’s executive producer. Serving as producers on the film will be Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and DeVon Franklin.
The film will be based on the popular Mattel toyline, which gave way to a very successful animated television series that ran from 1983-1985 and a 1987 film, which featured Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as the evil Skeletor. The property is about He-Man, who is the last hope for a magical land called Eternia.

Sony’s Masters of the Universe is scheduled to be released December 18th, 2019.
