Though it had stalled at Sony, the live-action film version of Mattel’s Masters of the Universe is heading to Netflix. Kyle Allen (West Side Story) will star as Prince Adam aka He-Man who, in the film, starts off as an orphan who discovers that he is a prince from a distant land and that he must use his powers to save it. The Lost City‘s Adam and Aaron Nee will direct from a script they cowrote with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ David Callaham. Production is expected to begin this summer.
