It seems a new remake based off a popular Mattel toy line has found a new studio. According to Variety, Sony Pictures is finalizing a deal to bring He-Man and the Masters of the Universe back to the big screen.
The film had previously been set up with producer Joel Silver at Warner Bros., but Mattel took the rights back and was shopping the film around after an agreement couldn't be made between the toy company, the studio and Silver.
Sony is teaming with Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch and they will start fresh on the film. Justin Marks had written a draft of the film with John Stevenson attached to direct at one point, but it wasn't clear if the writer and director would be on board for this new take.
The film will revolve around the prince-turned-warrior He-Man and his battles against the evil Skeletor.
