Several months ago, "Kick-Ass 2" director Jeff Wadlow signed on to rewrite the script and potentially even direct a cinematic reboot of the "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" franchise over at Sony.

Today, Columbia Pictures Senior Vice President DeVon Franklin revealed that the latest screenplay is finished, posting an image of the script's cover page dated December 24, 2014 on his Twitter account.
