With Jon M. Chu out of the equation, Sony has a short list of directors to possibly take the helm on MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE.
Based on the TV series of the same name, the film centers on Prince Adam, who, after uttering the magic words “By the power of Grayskull, I have the power,” magically turned into the heroic He-Man, the hero who along with his allies – Battle Cat, Man-at-Arms and Orko – defended the planet Eternia, and their Castle Grayskull from the evil forces of Skeletor.
