Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer in talks for Masters of the Universe reboot
David S. Goyer, best known as the man behind the scripts for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, is reportedly in talks to direct a reboot of Masters of the Universe, according to The Wrap.
Based on the beloved 1980s children's TV series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, inspired by the toys produced by Mattel, the new film is understood to be a reboot of the characters following an earlier adaptation for the big screen released in 1987, directed by Gary Goddard and starring Dolph Lundgren as Eternia's musclebound hero, with Frank Langella as his evil blue-skinned nemesis Skeletor.
Aside from his screenwriting work for Nolan and on films such as Man of Steel, Goyer is also known as the creator of TV series Da Vinci's Demons and has directed shows including Flash Forward and Threshold, as well as feature films such as Blade: Trinity.
Although a cast has yet to be confirmed for the new reboot, Goyer is reported to be in talks to direct the film, which currently expected to arrive in 2019.
