Noah Centineo, known for his work on all the boys I've loved before and Sierra Burgess is a loser, is in talks to play the role of Prince Adam in the reboot movie of He-Man and the Masters of l & # 39; universe.
According to Variety, Sony would be eager to find another role for Centineo after shooting the next Charlie's Angels movie. Adam and Aaron Nee are leading the restart, while Mattel Films and Sony have teamed up for this movie based on the popular 1980s TV series.
Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and DeVon Franklin are producers alongside executive producer David S. Goyer.
The alter ego of Prince Adam is the titular He-Man. After receiving the power of the witch of Grayskull Castle, Adam is able to turn himself into a man-man by holding his mighty sword, saying "By the power of Grayskull …" Adam is the prince of Eternia, son of King Randor. and Queen Marlena. He is also twinned with Princess Adora, whose alter ego is She-Ra.
The TV show was broadcast originally between 1983 and 1985 and lasted only two seasons. However, it was very much appreciated by many and proved very popular thanks to syndication. It was finally named the 58th largest animated series of all time by IGN. Conversely, the 1987 film Masters of the Universe with Dolph Lundgren was a critical and commercial failure.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the authors of the 2008 movie Iron Man, would write a new screenplay for the film. Previously, Goyer had announced that he would not direct the film.
