To All The Boys I've Loved Before star Noah Centineo cast as new He-Man

Noah Centineo, star of romantic comedy To All The Boys I've Loved Before, has been cast as He-Man in the new reboot of Masters Of The Universe. 

The reboot will be directed by brothers Aaron and Adam Nee, who will work from a script rewritten by Iron Man writers Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

Centineo confirmed the news during an interview last night (May 1st) with Jimmy Fallon. Production will begin this summer with a release date booked for the end of 2020.

Masters Of The Universe is based on Mattel’s hugely successful 1980s range of toys and was taken to the big screen in 1987.

The story follows Prince Adam, heir to the throne of planet Eternia, who uses the magical Power Sword to transform into the heroic warrior He-Man.

He-Man is tasked with defending the kingdom from the evil wizard Skeletor, who seeks to gain control of Castle Grayskull, source of He-Man’s powers.

The 1987 film starred Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor, it also featured Courteney Cox in one of her first roles.
