More than two years ago, Noah Centineo was in talks to play He-Man in Masters of the Universe. Now, Centineo has dropped out of the film.
“He is no longer attached to that project,” a representative for Centineo told Collider.
They gave no reason.
Who do YOU think should take over the role? We say:
Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers) are (I guess) still directing Sony’s reboot. Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man) penned the most recent draft of the script for producer David S. Goyer.
The original film stars Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor. Courteney Cox joins them as Julie Winston with Barry Livingston as Charlie, James Tolkan as Detective Hugh Lubic, Christina Pickles as Sorceress, Meg Foster as Evil-Lyn, Chelsea Field as Teela, Jon Cypher as Man-At-Arms, Billy Barty as Gwildor, Robert Duncan McNeill as Kevin Corrigan, Anthony De Longis as Blade, Tony Carroll as Beast Man, Pons Maar as Saurod, Robert Towers as Karg, and Peter Brooks as Narrator.
It begins when the evil Skeletor finds a mysterious power called the Cosmic Key and becomes nearly invincible. However, courageous warrior He-Man locates inventor Gwildor, 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 and Kevin. Now both He-Man and Skeletor’s forces arrive on Earth searching for the potent weapon.
It sports a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Masters of the Universe is a slapdash adaptation of the He-Man mythos that can’t overcome its cynical lack of raison d’etre, no matter how admirably Frank Langella throws himself into the role of Skeletor.
