With reboot fever well-underway and Toy-centric movies flourishing with key demographics, Sony Pictures and Mattell Films have deemed it the appropriate time to unleash “He-Man” onto the masses. With their upcoming relaunch of Masters Of The Universe in the production stages, the powers that be have already set their sights on a potential leading man in Noah Centineo. The young actor, who had a breakout turn in the Netflix film To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, appears to be in talks to handle the iconic role.

The film is based on Mattel’s line of action figures, which went on to spawn a 1987 starring Dolph Lundgren as the swole, blonde-mopped hero. Many have already cited differences between Centineo and the character he’s tapped to play, but it’s likely the studio is planning on taking the character in a different direction altogether.
In any case, the Masters Of The Universe reboot is set to be directed by Brothers Adam and Aaron Nee, working off a script by David S. Goyer. What do you think of this movie? Any interest?
