  • New Directors in consideration for MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!

    Last month, it was being reported that Sony Pictures had a wish-list of directors that they wanted to for their upcoming Masters of the Universe movie. It is now being reported by The Wrap that Sony is now considering three other Directors to helm the project. Here is the list of the current frontrunners for director:

    1. Harold Zwart (Director of the recent Karate Kid remake, and Mortal Instruments: City of Bones).

    2. Mike Cahill (Director of Sundance favourites Another Earth and I Origins).

    3. Chris McKay (Editor and Animation/Co-director on The LEGO Movie, and one of the key-creative forces on the hit TV series Robot Chicken).

    Nobody had been signed yet to direct the film, and other directors are still up for consideration at this time. Mattel is also involved with the movie: Julia Pistor and David Voss will executive produce on behalf of the company. Sony execs Hannah Minghella and DeVon Franklin will oversee the film project for the studio. A decision on who will direct the film is expected to be made in the next month.

    3. OH, HECK NO! The way MOTU gets treated on Robot Chicken - just keep him far, far away.

      Have you seen The Lego Movie? Chris McKay did a great job editing that film.

    It will never, ever be as good as the 1987 film.

      Variety has tweeted that Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2) is on the list as well. Kick Ass 2 was terrible, so lets hope this guy doesn't get it.

        Seems like that MOTU movie is not ready to see the light of day yet...

          It looks like Chris McKay can now be taken off of that short list of directors for MOTU. He has just been tapped to direct The Lego Movie 2.

            Too bad, but not surprised. I can see him on the hook to LEGO MOVIE 13. I enjoyed it along with the adults. Kids LOVE it.
