Jon M. Chu Might Direct ‘Masters of the Universe’ By the Power of Grayskull


So, Jon M. Chu might be directing a new Masters of the Universe movie. According to Deadline Hollywood, the man behind dance battle films like Step Up 3D and non-dance battle films like the delayed G.I. Joe: Retaliation is close to getting the deal through Sony and Escape Artists.

But let’s concentrate on the fact that this means we’re one step closer to seeing The Rock as Prince Adam/He-Man.

Speculation? Sure. But it’s undoubtedly something Sony has to be considering, and Chu’s involvement could help make it happen. Right now, the script from Alex Litvak (PredatorsThe Three Musketeers (2011)) and Mike Finch is called Grayskull but is currently under review at Mattel. A toy company. That’s looking over a movie script. So you know it’s going to be good. Nevertheless, the image of The Rock with a blond Dutch Boy haircut lifting a sword high above his head and screaming is enough to wash away the giant doubts.

A veteran of writing about movies for nearly a decade, Scott Beggs has been the Managing Editor of Film School Rejects since 2009. Despite speculation, he is not actually Walter Mathau's grandson. See? He can't even spell his name right.
