As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Sony has scheduled the film for December 18, 2019.

While there isn't much known about which actors are being considered for key roles, one person has met with McG (when he was still attached to the project) and producer Mary Viola. Goyer, however, has reportedly been hired to write a new screenplay.

The Masters of the Universe last hit the big screen in 1987, when Dolph Lundgren starred as muscle-bound Adam, Prince of Eternia, aka He-Man, opposite Frank Langella as Skeletor. Previous directors who nearly made the film include John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda), Jon M. Chu (Step Up 3D), and John Woo (Face/Off).

Well, that's all for now, but stay tuned for more news on He-Man. Their luck may change, though, now that the studio has brought in an A-list screenwriter and locked in a release date for the new Masters of the Universe.
