The writer behind The Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise is bringing cartoon hero He-Man back to the big screen. Screenwriter Terry Rossio is working on a reboot of Masters of the Universe, the 1987 big screen take on the Mattel toy series, which starred Dolph Lundgren as the musclebound prince and Frank Langella as his evil nemesis Skeletor. However, unlike the first movie, which also featured a young Courteney Cox, the new take will be set on He-Man's home planet of Eternia, rather than on Earth. It's the latest bid for the franchise to be brought back to the big screen - in 2009 filmmaker Joel Silver and Kung Fu Panda director John Stevenson were slated to create a live action version. G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu was then linked to helm the update, but he is no longer attached, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
