Bodybuilder Mike O’Hearn posted to his Instagram account that he needed to take off 30 pounds to get ready for the ‘He-Man’ movie. O’Hearn then told Matthew Sardo of Monkeys Fighting Robots that he is a frontrunner for the role of He-Man, via Twitter.
“Just for me is that I’ll work to make it happen,” said O’Hearn.
No official announcement has been made at this time.
The only other hints about Masters of the Universe came from DeVon Franklin the VP of Production at Columbia Pictures when he tweeted a picture of Battlecat back in March (see tweet below).
No writer, director, or release date is attached to the project.
Back in August we tagged O’Hearn as one of the TOP 5 ACTORS TO PLAY ‘HE-MAN’ IN A REBOOT.
