    just saw that !!!!!!!! WooHooo. This is awesome.

    Nice to see we finally get movement.


    I sincerely hope Sony keeps Tom Rothmans paws off the movie. ( look up reports on how he micromanaged X-men Origins :Wolverine when he was at Fox)

    Yes, it is real:

    Sony sets release date for Masters of the Universe reboot

    He-Man has the power — and now a release date.

    The long-discussed Masters of the Universe reboot has finally found a spot on the calendar, launching into theaters on Dec. 18, 2019, EW has confirmed. McG (Charlie’s Angels) has been on board to direct since early 2016.

    EW has also learned from a source familiar with the production that many actors, including A-list talent, are vying for key roles.

    Last June, Twilight star Kellan Lutz tweeted about the “amazing meeting” he had with McG and producer Mary Viola. The director later confirmed the meeting in an interview with IGN and said Lutz would be considered “very, very carefully,” noting how “passionate” he is about the character and story.

    Beginning as a line of toys and their accompanying mini-comics from Mattel, Masters of the Universe spawned several animated series, and eventually, in 1987, a live-action film starring Dolph Lundgren as Prince Adam a.k.a. the warrior He-Man, the defender of Eternia. Frank Langella portrayed He-Man’s nemesis Skeletor.

    Similar in tone to the big superhero-driven comic book adaptations made especially popular over the last decade, McG has found inspiration for the upcoming reboot in a very specific place. “We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment,” McG previously shared. “That it’s both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero’s journey.”

    It is cool to finally see a release date. I'm not sure how I feel about a December release. I guess the recent Star Wars movies, Avatar, and the Lord of the Ring movies have done good business in December and into the new year. Even though MOTU will lean heavily towards males, going up against Wicked and a Disney flick might be tough.

    The fact that Sony Pictures is still attached doesn't thrill me. They haven't exactly had the best track record for quality film releases for quite some time.

    Hopefully this changes the trend.

    With a writers strike possibly coming up, I assume they think they have a finished enough script they are ready to go with to announce a release date.

    EW updated their article to say that McG is no longer directing:

McG (Charlie’s Angels) had been on board to direct since early 2016, but EW has learned from a source familiar with the production that he is no longer attached and Sony is meeting with directors, and that David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) is writing the screenplay for the event film.

    Its common for big movie's to either get the summer-release or around december.



    Personally I am excited! Many know that I want a movie to happen and this is a great step for the process of the movie!

    With the Star Wars movies switching it up to May again and Avatar 2 not coming out now until December of 2020, it does leave a nice spot available for an action sci-fi flick in December of 2019. Will other movie studios respect MOTU enough to not put any big guns up against it besides the typical family movies? I'll be curious what gets the December 6 and 13, 2019 spots down the road.

    Very cool to see Sony giving the movie such a prime spot; I hope we'll see a great movie (even movie series).

    I am also pleased that Sony seems far more interested in the MOTU movie doing well after their debacle in giving Seth Rogen the reigns to the Green Hornet movie (so much wasted potential).

    So does this mean the movie is now officially "Green Lit" or is it still in "Develpoment Hell"? Does a Director and budget have to be attached before it's definately happening?

    Toyguru said around 2020 all the rights for MOTU go through a major shift.

    Maybe by setting a last feasable release date they could get a movie out, before the rights possibily revert, could the inhouse MOTU team at Sony be trying to internally force development on the project & increase momentum to maybe circumvent internal political issues that have been and are continuing to impeed the movie's development?

    Kind of "Lets get serious about USING the MOTU rights before we LOSE the MOTU rights!" It's intresting this news comes so hot off the heals of Mattel's big She-Ra trademark grab that Tallstar just reported.

    Now that the hype is re-lit we should expect a new comic book series, new cartoon-DVD releases, a new special edition of the original movie and some new movie action figures from S7

    McG being out and David S. Goyer in are good news (even though I'm not sure this is the kind of material Goyer is really into writing)...

    ComingSoon has him pegged for it still and has quotes from him as "recently spoke with CS"

    Entertainment Weekly probably gets the most inside entertainment news than any other source in the United States and they are saying he is out.
