Sony Is Trying to Get David S. Goyer to Direct the ‘He-Man’ Movie

So we’ve literally been talking about Sony’s attempt to remake Masters of the Universe for a years. Every time we think it’s a dead project, it seems to pop right back up again. The latest news is that, according to The Wrap, Sony is currently in talks to get David Goyer to direct the movie.

Goyer has written quite a few films, but only directed a handful. His most notable turn in the director’s chair was 2004’s Blade: Trinity… and that was best described as “a thing that happened to us all.” We reported earlier this year that Goyer had been tapped to write a new script for the film, so it makes sense that Sony would consider it.

They need to make a choice soon though if they hope to make the December 2019 release date they’ve bandied about.

Of course, this is all just discussions, and who knows what will come of it. I’m still not sure who this movie is for, as fans of the original He-Man are aging, and unlike other 80s properties (like Transformers) none of the show’s revivals have caught on.

Frankly, the only He-Man remake I ever needed was already done not too long ago in the form of a supermarket commercial. Let’s just all watch that repeatedly instead and call it a day.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
