David S. Goyer Will Direct Universal’s Masters of the Universe Reboot

Published

on

A while back now we got word that there Universal has a reboot of Masters of the Universe aka He-Man in the works with David S. Goyer penning the script.

Well, it turns out that Goyer must have done such a killer job on the screenplay that the powers that be have promoted him to the film’s director.

Yes, Master of the Universe will be hitting us from the director of Blade: Trinity.

Make of that what you will.

Aside from directing the third entry in the Blade series, Goyer is most well-known for writing the entire Blade trilogy, along with  Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Night trilogy.

I’m not too sure that Goyer is the right choice for the He-Man movie. His style seems to lean more towards the “gritty reboot” variety. But, hell, I could be totally wrong on this and he could switch up his game with amazing results. Time will tell.

What do you think of Goyer directing the Masters of the Universe reboot? Let us know below!

Masters of the Universe (1987) Synopsis:

When the evil Skeletor (Frank Langella) finds a mysterious power called the Cosmic Key, he becomes nearly invincible. However, courageous warrior He-Man (Dolph Lundgren) locates inventor Gwildor (Billy Barty), who created the Key and has another version of it. During a battle, one of the Keys is transported to Earth, where it is found by teenagers Julie (Courteney Cox) and Kevin (Robert Duncan McNeill). Now both He-Man and Skeletor’s forces arrive on Earth searching for the potent weapon.

Did Rob Zombie Plan to Make a Firefly Family Trilogy?

Published

on

devilsrejectspost.jpgAs we all know by this point, Rob Zombie has a sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects heading our way in early 2019 called 3 From Hell. But did Zombie ever plan to make three entries in the Firefly Family series?

Turns out (obviously?) the answer is no.

Zombie recently spoke with Blabbermouth and said that he never envision the original story spanning three movies back when he first began writing 15 years ago.

After the second one, I thought, ‘We’re done with it,’ but I always think that with every movie,” he said. “And then you kind of live with it for a long time, and the movies sort of take on a life of their own, or they start getting popular and the fans really start embracing them and the characters, and you start thinking, ‘Well… Hmmm… What if I did this? What if I did that?’ This one, it’s 14 years in between the two films, so it’s been a long time; it wasn’t really a rush to make it, by any means.”

All said and done, are you glad Zombie went back to the Firefly clan for another film? I guess we’ll see… Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

3 From Hell is written and directed by Rob Zombie and stars Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, Sid Haig, Austin Stoker, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Daniel Roebuck, Emilio Rivera, Clint Howard, Bill Oberst Jr., David Ury, Tom Papa, Danny Trejo, Dot-Marie Jones, Richard Riehle, Richard Edson, Pancho Moler, Sean Whalen, Kevin Jackson, and Dee Wallace.
