Masters of the Universe reboot will start shooting in April

Back in December it was announced that David S. Goyer (Blade: Trinity) had signed on to write and direct Sony’s long-gestating Masters of the Universe reboot, and now it seems that He-Man and company are finally ready to break out of development hell.

According to Omega Underground, Sony is looking to commence production on the latest big screen take on the classic Mattel property this April, ready for its planned release on December 18th 2019.

Goyer has co-written the script with Lindsey Beer (Barbie, Godzilla vs. Kong), and follows in the footsteps of fellow directors Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and McG (Charlie’s Angels), both of whom have been attached in recent years.

Masters of the Universe is of course based upon the 80s toy line, which spawned a classic animated series from 1983 to 1985, along with further series in 1990 and 2002. Dolph Lundgren also took on the role

Masters of the Universe Movie Begins Shooting This Spring?

After a few false starts and personnel changes, it looks like Sony's Masters of the Universe reboot is finally going to start production this spring. It was reported late last year that David S. Goyer is attached to co-write and direct the Masters of the Universe reboot, which still has an official release date of December 18th, 2019. Goyer is known for his screenwriting work on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Warner Bros.' Man of Steel. His previous directing credits include 2004's Blade: Trinity, the 2009 horror movie The Unborn and episodes of Starz's Da Vinci's Demons, which he created.

Omega Underground reports that Masters of the Universe will finally begin production this coming April. It isn't clear where the production will film at this time, but the report suggests Europe is a strong contender since Sony has recently filmed some of its recent larger movies over there.

Wesley Snipes Has The Perfect Answer To Who Should Play The Next Blade

Long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe took the world by storm, the studio had their first major movie in 1998’s Blade. The horror-actioner featuring the obscure comic book vampire hunter has become a cult favourite, spawning two sequels – 2002’s Blade II and 2004’s Blade: Trinity – and a spinoff TV series in 2006. Given that, fans are often wondering if Blade will be introduced in the McU at some point.

But who could replace Wesley Snipes, who nailed the role in the original trilogy of films? Well, the actor has the perfect answer to that question. The star took to Twitter today to respond to the many times he’s asked who should be the next Blade. His reply? Himself, of course!

“When anyone asks ‘Who could be the next Blade?” he wrote, followed by a slap emoji. “You already know there’s only one Blade fam!”

10 Bloopers That Made Iconic Villains Much Less Scary

<p>It tends to be the heroic characters that we remember most in movies and television shows, but the villainous characters are undoubtedly every bit as important as them when it comes to making any story complete. Any given villain’s capacity to intimidate and scare us (and indeed the characters they’re opposing) is all part of his or her’s appeal – and it can be extremely hard to take a villain seriously if they lack that ability. It is, however, sometimes fun to witness these villainous characters out of context, such as when the actors are in character but something goes wrong – and looking at blooper reels is an ideal way to make that happen. This video will take you through ten bloopers that make iconic villains from a variety of sources look A Lot less scary than they usually are. You’ll see bloopers involving the following characters

Blade 4 Fan Trailer Conjures Up The Vampire Crossover We All Want To See

Though it certainly wasn’t without its faults, New Line’s Blade trilogy served up an overly faithful rendition of the fanged vampire hunter that ended far too soon with the release of David S. Goyer’s Blade: Trinity in 2004. And the Marvel fanbase has been quietly campaigning for a revival ever since.

For years, it seemed as though those cries had fallen on deaf ears, but when Blade‘s film rights reverted back to Marvel Studios in 2012, moviegoers began to stand up and take notice. One year later, we learned that Marvel had begun work on a script for Blade 4, which was later corroborated by Wesley Snipes himself, who assured viewers that both he and Marvel were trying to figure out the logistics of resurrecting Eric Brooks.

Indeed, last we reported, Kevin Feige went on record to say that there’s “nothing imminent” on the Blade front just yet,

New Image for DC’s ‘Titans’ Reveals Brenton Thwaites as the Live-Action Robin

Warner Bros. has revealed the first look at Brenton Thwaites as the live-action Dick Grayson, aka Robin, in the upcoming DC superhero series Titans and he looks legit. Robin's new super suit comes from costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, whose career ranges from Elf to Requiem for a Dream, and who has plenty of experience with designing superheroes after Iron Man, Black Lightning, and Blade: Trinity. They're clearly going for the classic, iconic Robin look with the new costume, from the logo to the weaponry. The new live-action DC superhero series comes from the team behind …

Masters of the Universe Movie Targets Director David S. Goyer

Masters of the Universe Movie Targets Director David S. Goyer
It has been revealed that Sony and David S. Goyer are in talks to have the Dark Knight writer direct the Masters of the Universe reboot. It was announced earlier this year that Goyer had been tapped to write the script and now it appears that he'll be directing the reboot as well. The Master of the Universe project has been in development for years and has gone through many scripts and was reportedly close to getting off of the ground when McG was attached to helm the project, but Sony has been speaking to prospective directors since April of this year.

The Wrap reports that David S. Goyer is in talks to direct the Masters of the Universe reboot, which still currently has an official release date of December 18th, 2019. Goyer is known for his screenwriting work on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Warner Bros.

David S. Goyer in talks to direct Masters of the Universe for Sony

The Masters of the Universe film is one big step closer to being made as The Wrap reports that Sony has begun talks with David S. Goyer to direct the film. Goyer has previously directed Blade: Trinity and helped craft Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Goyer has already written the script for the film, having done so when McG was directing before stepping down earlier this year. Sony seems to be confident enough in Goyer’s vision to let him helm the long-developed project.

The film is based upon the Mattel 80’s toyline which spawned several animated shows, notably of course He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, along with the 1987 live-action film Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man. In the series, Prince Adam of Eternia gains the power to become He-Man, a strong protector of the universe who must battle the evil forces of Skeletor for peace.

Masters Of The Universe reboot lands a new director

Mike Cecchini Simon Brew Dec 1, 2017

David Goyer looks set to bring He-Man back to the big screen...

The Masters of the Universe movie is still in development, and apparently much closer to production than we thought. The movie currently has a December 18th 2019 release date.

This one has had a revolving door of directors and writers. The most recent director to exit was McG, and his exit was followed by the entrance of David Goyer as writer.

But now it appears that Goyer is also directing, as per a report in The Wrap. Goyer is, at the very least, a good choice to write this. His incredible attention to the worldbuilding of Krypton in Man Of Steel makes me wonder what he could do with Eternia. The last feature he directed was 2009's The Unborn, and he previously helmed Blade: Trinity.

As far as I know, the previous script was

David S. Goyer is in Talks To Direct Masters Of The Universe

Masters of the One film project that I've been looking forward to seeing one day. It's been in and out of development for years and I've been hoping to see a great director attached to it. The last director who was developing it was McG, but thankfully that fell apart. Now, according to The Wrap, David S. Goyer is in talks to direct it.

I have mixed feeling about the possibility of Goyer taking on the project. He's written some great films like Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and Dark City. But then he's also written some turds like Jumper and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. As far as his directing resume goes, he directed Blade: Trinity, The Unborn, and The Invisible, which I think were all pretty mediocre films.

Now, Goyer has written the most recent draft of the script for the film, which is fine. But, I

Competition: Win action-thriller ‘Bushwick’ on DVD

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Bushwick, available on DVD and Blu-ray 23rd October, we have a copy of the film on DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Kaleidoscope Entertainment!

It’s Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista versus an entire Texas battalion in New York City in this all-out action thriller from the makers of Cooties and Stake Land.

Action movie stars don’t come much bigger than Dave Bautista, Drax from the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy series, and the villainous Hinx from the latest James Bond film Spectre. Here, front and centre as Stupe, a take no prisoners ex-Marine on the warpath against a Texas militia invading New York, Bushwick establishes Bautista – soon to be seen in Blade Runner 2049 – as an action hero on a par with Vin Diesel and The Rock. Brittany Snow, from the Pitch Perfect movies, excels as Lucy, who,

See the First Image of Josh Brolin as Cable in 'Deadpool 2'

Ryan Reynolds has proven himself to be an adept fighter on the big screen, from an early appearance in Blade: Trinity all the way through the years to Deadpool (above). He's also proving to be a worthy warrior on social media. During production on Deadpool, Reynolds shared a slew of clever promotional images and he's continued that pattern now that Deadpool 2 is in production. Recently, for example, he shared a first-look photo of himself as Deadpool together with Zazie Beetz as Domino, a mutant mercenary.

Will Armed Response Bring Wesley Snipes All the Way Back?

At one point in time Wesley Snipes was one of the biggest action stars in the United States, as shown by his roles in Demolition Man, Passenger 57, and the Blade franchise. However, his career suffered a slowdown following Blade: Trinity in 2004, which was not helped by his conviction for tax fraud. Said career did not come to a complete stop, seeing as how Snipes continued to make direct-to-dvd movies, but it was clear that he was no longer at the top. Since that time, Snipes has had some minor roles in movies released in the movie theaters, with

Blade: Kevin Feige optimistic about vampire hunter's return

Kirsten Howard Jun 29, 2017

When it comes to Blade's return to the big screen, it might be a matter of 'when' not 'if'...

Before Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, before Chris Evans' Captain America, before the McU as we know it...there was Blade. The fearless daywalking vampire hunter was played to perfection by Wesley Snipes in two box office hits, before a tumultuous third instalment in the franchise - Blade: Trinity - pumped the brakes on Blade's cinematic story.

Since then, there's been a dodgy TV series adaptation that replaced Snipes with rapper Sticky Fingaz, and then silence (bar a few hopeful mutterings that Blade could resurface or be rebooted for the big screen once more).

Realistically, the only person who could really make it happen is Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige,

Blade Will Join the McU Someday Says Marvel Boss

Blade Will Join the McU Someday Says Marvel Boss
Is Blade the vampire hunter set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Not that we can expect to see a reboot in the near future, but don't be surprised if the character shows up in the McU at some point soon. Marvel Studios' head honcho Kevin Feige is in charge and, if he has his way, it will happen someday. Unless someone else gets his job, he more or less will get his way, so this is pretty good news for Blade fans.

Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds for Spider-Man: Homecoming and took some time to chat with JoBlo. During the conversation, the subject of Blade 4 came up and the possibility of the character having a future in the McU. Kevin Feige's answer was very positive, saying that the folks in charge think it would be cool, but the time isn't right just yet. Here's

Wesley Snipes emerges to battle aliens in this trailer for The Recall

Damn, dude! Simon says that Wesley Snipes looks fantastic for a 54-year-old badass. Honestly, I don't think I've seen him act in anything since the 2004 release of Blade: Trinity. That being said, Snipes has been keeping himself busy while appearing in some under-the-radar flicks like The Marksman, The Detonator, The Contractor, and Hard Luck. Beyond that, he's also lent his talents to films like... Read More...

Masters Of The Universe: McG not directing, new writer

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

David Goyer is writing the new Masters Of The Universe film, as the search for a star and director gets underway...

More news on the big screen reboot of Masters Of The Universe, that Sony is finally pressing ahead with. Yesterday, it was revealed that the movie now has a release date, with the studio earmarking it for a December 18th 2019 unveiling. It was also thought that McG, who has been attached as director since early last year, was still on board to call the shots.

But not so. We now learn that McG and He-Man have parted company, and that Sony is on the lookout for a new director to take on the project. Meetings have been taking place with potential candidates. In the meantime, David S Goyer, a comic book movie regular (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man Of Steel, Blade: Trinity) is working on a new screenplay for the film.
