When adapting a project as nuanced and important as He-Man, you need someone who knows what they’re doing. You need a professional accustomed to making Alex Pettyfer not look ridiculous in fur underpants. Sony knows this, and it seems they’re not f&*^ing around.
The studio has approached G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu to helm their long-gestating Masters of the Universe film. I really do feel like he’s the perfect guy for the job. While the first G.I. Joe movie was brainless fun, Retaliation looks more believable and grounded. Or as believable and grounded as a movie about ninjas fighting on cliff faces can be. My point is, yes, hire that man. I’m ready for a gritty take on the world of Eternia. And to see Alexandra Breckinridge wear Teela’s golden ram-horned halter top. (THR)
