Justin Marks Talks New He-Man Movie

He-Man
Okay, show of hands: Who’s ready to take a trip back to Castle Greyskull?

Screenwriter Justin Marks is hoping that a lot of you have your hands up right now, because he’s up to his eyebrows in excitement for the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe script he’s working on with Neil Ellice. He’s heard all the rumors about the movie, too (He-Man as a soldier in Iraq?), and he recently sat down with Toyfare Magazine to debunk them.

We haven’t read the latest issue of Toyfare — in fact, until a few minutes ago, we weren’t even aware of its existence — but that’s okay, because the helpful folks at IESB have excerpted a few bits and pieces from Marks’ interview. After establishing his fanboy credentials (“A lot of people think of He-Man and…laugh him off, but those of us who grew up on him, we don’t laugh about He-Man at all”), Marks offers fans a few general outlines of his vision for the film.

Telling Toyfare that it’ll be “a Skeletor movie,” Marks goes on to promise a non-wrestler cast, and talks about the challenge of melding the major elements of the (cough) He-Man mythos into a deliberately enjoyable film:

He-Man is sword-and-sandals meets science fiction. If you avoid it and just try to make it sword and sandals, then it becomes a boring movie. If you just try to make it science fiction, it’s going to be really kitschy and weird, and it’s not going to be true to He-Man. You have to make it both. So we have to come up with specific ideas, grounded, that would spawn a world that was people carrying around swords, and yet, guys like Tri-Klops running around with his spinning visor and this sort of nano-technological way about him. What is the sorcery that can create stuff like that?

    IDEAS ON MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE MOVIE.

    Warner Bros and Silver Pictures are working on the Masters Of The Universe film and it will be like Batman Begins,
    Kaare Andrews is a fan of He-Man series and he should direct this film and the of visual effects will be done by the same team who done the effects for 300 film.
    Travis Fimmel,Channing Tatum,Chris Hemsworth are all could be runners for the He-Man role but Travis Fimmel should play He-Man.
    Masters Of The Universe would be filmed in Australia or different countries.
    Thank You.
    BRUCE ACOSTA
    AUSTRALIA.
