The upcoming He-Man movie has been given a new name and writer according to THR, who say that newcomer Evan Daugherty has been hired to write the latest draft of Greyskull.
John Stevenson (“Kung Fu Panda”) is attached to direct the adaptation of the show, which followed a blond warrior named Prince Adam who, when uttering the magic words, “By the power of Grayskull — I have the power,” turned into the heroic He-Man. He and his allies — Battle Cat, Man-at-Arms and Orko — defended their planet Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor, who tried week after week to conquer the fortress Castle Grayskull, which imbued He-Man with his powers.
Warners sees the big-screen version as a gritty fantasy and reimagines Adam as a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.
