As preproduction continues on Sony's long-planned Masters of the Universe film, the reboot may have finally cast its protagonist He-Man.
To All the Boys I've Loved Before star Noah Centineo is reportedly in talks with the studio to take on the role of Eternia's iconic hero. At the time of writing, it is unknown if the role will also entail Centineo playing Prince Adam, He-Man's noble alter ego, or if a different actor will be cast in the part.
Principal photography on the reboot was expected to begin this past spring in Eastern Europe for a 2019 release. However, the production ran into delays after losing its original director and screenwriter David S. Goyer due to concerns over the film's expected budget.
Since Goyer's departure, brothers Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers) have signed on helm the reboot. They also rewrote Goyer's screenplay with Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. Goyer is still attached to the production as an executive producer, but no new start date for principal photography has been officially announced by Sony at this time.
