He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was one of the biggest franchise to come out of the 80s, and a movie reboot has been in development hell for years. We've been getting little updates on the film from time to time, but it looks like the movie already has someone in mind to play the lead role of Prince Adam.

According to The Wrap, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I've Loved Before) is being eyed as the lead for the Masters of the Universe film. We don't have many details yet, but I think Centineo could very much pull off the role with enough training and bodybuilding. You can't expect a character like He-Man not to have a body comparable to someone like Jason Momoa or Henry Cavill.

David S. Goyer was initially hired to write the script, but he's now attached to the film as an executive producer. Now screenwriter duties have fallen to Iron Man's Matt Holloway and Art Marcum with Aaron and Adam Nee sitting in the directors' chair.

While I think a He-Man film has its own nostalgic appeal, it would need to do a lot to be a big hit with audiences. John Carter was basically the same genre, but it ultimately ended up being a flop for Disney. Even the Conan the Barbarian reboot didn't do so well in cinemas. Hopefully, the Nee brothers have something special in mind for Masters of the Universe to really draw an audience in.

No release date has been set for the Masters of the Universe film.
