The "He-Man" adaptation is now being written by Mike Finch and Alex Litvak.

Mike Finch and Alex Litvak, who co-wrote the upcoming Predators, have been hired by Columbia Pictures to write the script for Masters of the Universe.

The “He-Man” adaptation was previously at Warner Bros. Pictures, where it went through several writers and in latter stages had John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) attached to direct.

Heat Vision says that Finch and Litvak’s pitch “attempted to balance a treatment that would convince the studio it was cinematic and keep the toy company satisfied that its characters were being portrayed appropriately.”

Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch of Escape Artists are producing.
