Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have hired Christopher Yost to rewrite the He-Man reboot Masters of the Universe, according to Variety.
Yost has worked on Thor: The Dark World, X-Men: Evolution, The Batman, Wolverine and the X-Men, and most recently announced Thor: Ragnarok.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe ran for 130 episodes from 1983 to 1985. The most powerful man in the universe, He-Man, goes against the evil forces of Skeletor to save the planet Eternia and to protect the secrets of Castle Grayskull. Courtney Cox and Dolph Lundgren brought He-Man to the big screen in 1987 with Masters of the Universe. The film was in theaters for only three weeks making $17,336,370, and is perhaps more famous for taking some of the budget for Superman IV – but has lived on as a cult classic.
