Nicholas Galitzine Will Play He-Man in The Upcoming MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Movie — GeekTyrant

Amazon MGM Studios and Mattel Films are still developing a live-action Masters of the Universe movie, and it’s just been announced that Nicholas Galitzine is taking on the role of He-Man.

I’m not familiar with Galitzine’s work, but he’s appeared in projects such as The Idea of You, Red, White & Royal Blue, and a few other films I’ve never heard of.

Masters of the Universe is being directed by Travis Knight (Bumblebee, Kubo and the Two Strings), and the script comes from Chris Butler. David Callaham, Aaron Nee and Adam Nee worked on an earlier draft.

Julie Rapaport, head of film production and development at Amazon MGM Studios, said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to bring the beloved Masters of the Universe to life and couldn’t be more excited to announce the immensely talented Nicholas Galitzine as our He-Man.

“Joining forces with director Travis Knight, Mattel, and Escape Artists, this reintroduction of the character and his universe will be an epic film that will delight audiences from here to Eternia.”

Mattel Films’ President, Robbie Brenner added, “Mattel Films is proud to work with Amazon and team up again with the incredible Courtenay Valenti, to bring Masters of the Universe to the big screen.

“We are thrilled to be producing alongside the highly respected and prolific Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch, with the visionary Travis Knight, and the charismatic and talented Nicholas Galitzine, our Prince Adam/He-Man!”

I love that Travis Knight is directing the film. That’s the biggest selling point for me, but, there’s a synopsis for it that was shared and it has me worried because it sets the story on Earth for some reason.

In Masters of the Universe, “10-year-old Prince Adam who crashed to Earth in a spaceship and was separated from his magical Power Sword—the only link to his home on Eternia.

“After tracking it down almost two decades later, Prince Adam is whisked back across space to defend his home planet against the evil forces of Skeletor.

“But to defeat such a powerful villain, Prince Adam will first need to uncover the mysteries of his past and become He-Man: the most powerful man in the Universe!”

I want to see an epic He-Man movie get made and I hope that Knight can pull off something great. I also hope that this synopsis is wrong.
