He Man finally has the power!!!!!

He-Man gets a Director

Masters Of The Universe has finally been dragged out of development hell by John Stevenson...
Warner bros and Joel Silver have officially picked John Stevenson to bring the muscle bound hero and his friends to the screen for the 2nd time..The less said about the 1987 movie the better! Mattel head honcho Barry Waldo had this to say about Stevenson: “I think it's fair to say, and knowing the epic nature of this script, you will see things you have never seen before. John has that creativity,” Stevenson himself says: “There was this locked bunker that you had to be escorted into, It was filled with art, some generated by the Mattel artists, and I looked around, and said, 'I get it!' "We started formulating a specific vision for costumes, creatures, architecture, and the creation of a mythology and look for a whole world we'll create." Good news for He fans then..or is it! Aparantly the concept has been "re-worked" and is now going to be about a soldier named Adam that stumbles into (Narnia style i would assume!) the magical world of Eternia were the evil Skeletor is trying to eradicate all magic. I dont know about you guys, but i am sick to death of the stranger in a strange land bullshit that the studios feel they need to force down out throats so that we can more easily identify with the main character. Can you imagine if Peter Jackson had decided to make Frodo a young earthling who falls into a magical well and wakes up in the Shire?...course you cant. Obviously He-Man isnt regarded as being as important or as revered as LOTR, but i still dont see why these idiots think they can screw around with the mythology. Anyway, just my 2...what do you fine folks think?
