|Flexing my acting chops is WAY harder than flexing my abs!|
This news, in combination of ties to McG, make my hopes for a proper film adaptation of this beloved 80s property quite small. The old 1987 Dolph Lundgren version was a tremendous mess, and I still have some enjoyment of it- like Frank Langella's Skeletor and Meg Foster's Evil-Lyn. Too bad there wasn't Tri-Klops or Stinkor...
What I'm wondering is why they don't get people on the project that have a vision for Eternia like the awesome sculptures below by DeviantArt-ist EdgePang.

As it sits now, the Masters of the Universe film sounds like it's being handled as horrendously as the JEM film, which is to say it's looking like a pile of Beast Man's rotten shit. It doesn't help that it's being written by Christopher Yost, the person responsible for the terrible Thor: The Dark World. Seriously, not a single thing I've read about this project makes it sound even remotely decent.
I currently hope that this Masters of the Universe film will never reach my eyes. In "great hands" my ass- it sounds awful.
