Kellan Lutz in Talks to Star in 'Masters of the Universe'

By the power of Grayskull, Sony's planned "Masters of the Universe" reboot appears to be inching closer to reality.

Actor Kellan Lutz, best known for his roles in "Twilight" and "The Legend of Hercules," announced on Twitter that he met with director McG about the long-brewing live-action project. The news even inspired some impressive fan art:

The reboot, which lurks in the shadow of the 1987 Dolph Lundgren film, has been in the works at Sony since 2009, with Jon M. Chu in talks to direct as recently as 2012. When that didn't pan out, the studio began its search anew, with McG boarding the project early this year. The script has passed through the hands of a list of writers, but the latest version is believed to have been written by Alex Litvak and Mike Finch.
