The director of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never may be returning to the world of ridiculous man-bangs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon M. Chu is in talks to clean up Sony's He-Men and take over the studio's Masters of the Universe film. He'd be working from a script from Predators writers Alex Litvak and Mike Finch, who wrote a script called Grayskull once Warner Bros. outgrew their toys and sold them off--losing a few key accessories in the process, like the old Justin Marks script that had found some popularity online. Unlike the 1987 Masters of the Universe that saw Dolph Lundgren visiting Earth to rescue Courtney Cox, this new script reportedly sticks closer to the cartoons, keeping the action in world of Eternia and returning He-Man's origins to a magic sword and a platitude that transforms him from a man in a pink vest to tiger-riding barbarian.
Chu most recently directed the similarly action-figure-based G.I. Joe: Retaliation, so if the deal works out, this would make him as popular as Transformers and Ninja Turtles producer Michael Bay next time they get on the backlot playground. Prepare for Bay to react with either the announcement of a SilverHawks movie or the reveal that his mom promised him a Super Nintendo for his birthday.
