Mattel’s long in development ‘Masters Of The Universe’ film has found a new home at Netflix and it’s Prince Adam in the form of Kyle Adam (‘West Side Story’). The film had been at Sony for sometime with Noah Centineo in the lead but momentum on the project had stalled.
Netflix are planning to shot the film this summer with Adam and Aaron Nee (‘The Lost City), who have been with the film since it’s time at Sony, still attached to direct from a script they wrote with David Callaham (‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’).
Masters of the Universe is an iconic property that shaped the imaginations of an entire generation of kids with the message of becoming the best version of yourself. With our partners at Netflix, we look forward to showing audiences that anything can happen in Eternia. We are continuing to unlock this global franchise in new ways, and we can’t wait to see Kyle battle it out with Skeletor in this epic live-action saga.Robbie Brenner, executive producer of Mattel Films
We’ve always been inspired by the fantastical world of Eternia. This movie has been 14 years in the making for us and our partners and we are so excited to tell an entirely new story for Masters of the Universe with the Nee Brothers and Dave Callaham for Mattel and Netflix and share it with a global audience.Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch – producers
The move to Netflix makes logical sense as the streamer is already home to Kevin Smith’s ‘Masters Of The Universe: Revelation’, which is a continuation of the classic series, and the CGI reboot ‘He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe’.
There is no release date for the film.
