McG talks Masters of the Universe: vision, characters and setting

No Comments

Masters of the Universe is taking forever to take off, supposedly because of the way audiences see this kind of sword-and-sorcery story. Given the lack of enthusiasm toward the genre, the latest director of Masters of the Universe explains how he wants to make this movie different.

McG talked to IGN about his version of the movie, mentioning that he had an important meeting with Sony to discuss it.

There is no green light for the movie yet, so the cast hasn’t been chosen. However, McG eyed Kellan Lutz (Twilight) for the role of He-Man/Prince Adam:

We haven't cast the role yet, but I like Kellan very much. Obviously, we need a talented entertainer, but we also need a certain physicality, which he embodies. He'll be considered very, very closely. We haven't gotten to the casting process yet. Kellan's a good guy, and we had a great meeting, and he's passionate about He-Man, he's passionate about the Adam story. He really knows a lot about it. I was charmed by his focus and intensity. He'll be considered very, very carefully. We're just not there yet. We've got to get the movie on its feet, then we'll cast the movie.

Maybe the reason why Masters of the Universe is taking so long resides in McG’s will to make the best of this story. He revealed:

I think we want to honor the fan base, first and foremost. We also need to be cognizant of the incredible resonance of what Kevin Feige is doing with Marvel, and the balance of full-bodied entertainment. That it's both credible and emotional, action-packed, and the story of a hero's journey. It's the genesis of He-Man, it's the becoming of He-Man. We want it to be clicking on all cylinders in that regard. We're not going to stop until we get it right.

He also revealed that the cast will be exquisite, as “the characters are bigger than any given actor”, and he aims to choose the right actors, not the big names. “I'm not really hung up on, ‘Oh, it's got to be a star.’ I just want someone who's right for it,” he said.
