Moviehole caught up with screenwriter/director Adam Rifkin where readers of the site were given a chance to ask him questions about his various projects. Two of the questions touched upon the status of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie which recently was dropped by Fox 2000:
Tallstar Asks : Hello Adam, Can you give us an idea what direction you went on the script for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? It has been stated that Fox 2000 handed the project back to Mattel, but now its listed as an 'upcoming' project. Has there been some renewed interest? Thanks!
Adam : Legally I'm not allowed to say much concerning HE-MAN, however I can say this: HE-MAN is a movie that's definitely going to be made! Where and with whom are all pretty top secret at present, but when the shroud of mystery is finally lifted I can promise you, HE-MAN fans will not be disappointed.
Big Bob Asks : What interested you about "He-Man"?
Adam : Again, like Underdog, HE-MAN was a cartoon I liked watching when I was younger. It's been really neat getting to be involved with so many of the big screen versions of properties I loved when I was a kid.
