Woo lost interest in He-Man?

JohnWoo.jpgAccording to comments from a representative of Lions Rock, John Woo is attached to the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe film but he's lost interest in the project. He also announced that a script is in, and Mattel are actively talking with Lions Rock.

From MTV through Moviehole:

"John is attached, but the project isn't a priority or high on his radar. Essentially, [he] lost enthusiasm"...Adam Rifkin (“Detroit Rock City”) has handed in a script for the film but he’s unsure whether or not it would be optioned should the film ultimately get the greenlight

It doesn't sound good. A script that looks shaky and a director who's lost his excitement for a project. I suspect a new script is not the only new thing we might be hearing about on this project.

I just think the time for this film has passed. I can't see He-Man working on the big screen nowadays and it really should stay confined to the cartoon and the one and only movie outing. What do you think?



I remember back home in the late 80's at the height of the He-man mania the local film industry did a parody to this film and made He-Man a homosexual, they called the film "She-Man: Mistress of the Universe". Joey de Leon, the comedian who played She-Man was great, oh its so devilishly funny!

I'll be damned if I can understand what got Woo interested in MOTU in the first place, or indeed who the studio thinks the audience for such a film would be.
