By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Looks like the Masters of the Universe reboot is picking up some steam finally.  Variety is reporting that Thor: Ragnorak scribe Christopher Yost is gonna dominate the new He-Man script.  Get the details below:

According to Variety:

After helping shape the world of Asgard, “Thor” scribe Christopher Yost is now ready to head to Eternia to help He-Man return to the bigscreen.

Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have tapped Yost to do a rewrite on its reboot of “Masters of the Universe.”

Terry Rossio and Jeff Wadlow wrote previous drafts of “Masters of the Universe,” which is being produced by Escape Artists principals Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch.

Set on the planet of Eternia, the story follows a warrior named Prince Adam who has the power to transform into the heroic He-Man. His nemesis is a villain named Skeletor who seeks to conquer a fortress known as Castle Grayskull in order to learn the secrets held within.

The last time we saw He-Man battle Skeletor on the big screen was the 1987 disappointment Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren.  The film while slightly entertaining to me as a child, is not even watchable today, its not watchable in a guilty pleasure good/bad kind of way.  Its just a bad movie, although Skeletor is kind of cool.
