    Interesting info from Dolph Lundgren on Facebook

    Dolph has published another video about Expendable 2 on Facebook and as a true He-Fan (The video is not about it), I just commented :
    " Please play in the new He-Man movie!!!! :-) "
    and another fan followed the discussion on He-Man subject :
    " hy was there never a sequel to the original heman?? that **** ****** me the frag offf"
    and Dolph replied in person:
    " Because Cannon, the production company, couldn't pay the licensing rights to Mattel during pre-production. I turned it down and they cast another lead actor anyway. "

    I didn't know that!

    Maybe if you comment this thread, you may be able to ask him a question!

    Dolph Lundgren just confirmed on Facebook that the Blue Ray of the Movie will be out in October !

    And he just posted a nice picture of him and an article:

    MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE opened in America 25 years ago today!

    MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE was my second picture and, my life had entered this kind of tumultuous vortex, from being an unknown Swedish kid who went to the gym every day and was shaking test tubes in a lab, I was now recognizable all over the world.

    I wasn't mentally ready, it wasn't like I had gone waiting tables for five years working on my own script and always thought about becoming a movie star, it just happened like that! Suddenly I'm starring in this big movie, and there's not Stallone anymore, now I have to carry the film...

    It wasn't smooth, it was difficult: I had to speak with an American accent, I had to play kind of a classic lead, I didn't have any experience so I had a lot of pressure on me. And there were people on the set from Mattel, people from the studio, and i wasn't really sure if I was gonna make it so it was really nervous about it.

    I can't remember much of it because it was like a lot of late nights, a lot of promotion, a lot of agents and managers and people around me that, I didn't have the experience nor the talent to figure out who was who.

    It was a Cannon picture and Cannon kind of started doing very badly at that time, I think they had a lot of problems financially and the release wasn't quite as successful and maybe not as well thought out of a marketing campaign as it should have been. I broke up with Grace at the time as well when MASTERS opened.

    So my life started getting more problematic, because it was the other side of fame: one side is, "now you're famous, you're in all the magazines", and the other side is, "here comes Hollywood to devour you"...

    I was happy actually to get the call for RED SCORPION, because it meant that I could focus on the picture and I could go to Africa, that was kind of exciting.

    Lundgren wants to be Randor in He-Man reboot

    http://www.contactmusic.com/news/dolph-lundgren-wants-to-star-in-heman-reboot_1384786

    The 54-year-old actor is keen to take on the role of the titular character's father King Randor in the forthcoming remake of the 1987 movie 'Masters of the Universe', instead of reprise his role as the muscular superhero and wear loincloth on set for three months.

    Cool news! I think he could do a good Randor. or maybe he could be King Grayskull in a flashback/prolouge scene

    I’d rather he was King Grayskull in the highly-likely prologue sequence.

    Yep, the Van Damme movie "Cyborg" originally started out as the MOTU sequel, so I believe that's what that's all about.

    Even before that, they cast some surfer dude as He-Man. Lance something...
    "I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    yes!

    having dolph in a potentially new MOTU movie would rock! ... and it would be a great nod to the '87 original ...

    See what I don't get is where Dolph would ever wanna talk down in any bit about MOTU 87 live. It wasn't a mistake for him. He can say he was part of a movie that became a larger than life constantly referred to cult classic. Few other films get that privilege. I was then and still am now a huge supporter of him being the originator of He-Man's live incarnation. Do I believe that it may have been at a bad time for it? Yes. That I will say. But the movie was done passionately and on a hamstrung budget that shows. For what that cast was, for what the effects were, and for what all other aspects were put into this movie I can see the admiration that was pressed into it.

    Above all though, it is very reassuring to know that even if he didn't don that Sword of Power again, that he would openly say he'll want to be involved with whatever new film happens to come our way when it does. And it's very cool to know that a He-Man also happens to be a He-Fan in this circumstance.

    Main Point: HE MUST BE A KING (we don't know the story) :-) HE MUST BE IN THE FILM

    So here is a petition for Dolph as King Randor or King Grayskull on FB

    EDIT: the petition is now for both, Randor and/or Grayskull
