Remember the ’80s classic He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? It’s getting (another) live action film and will be shot in Prague this summer.

The project will begin filming in Prague mid-July and will reportedly put a different spin on the origin story of the popular ’80s series.

According to ThatHashtagShowKing Randor will be presented as the great warrior-king of Eternia, a descendant of the Grayskulls, and the father of two sons: Adam and Keldor! As the film begins, Keldor is the chosen heir to the throne and his brother, Adam, is young, unfit and a bit of a black sheep. Where Adam’s relationship with his father is strained, Keldor is the epitome of a perfect son, beloved by his father…until the fate of Eternia is put on the line. With his kingdom on the line, Randor puts his people first, betraying Keldor, inciting the series of events that leads to him becoming the iconic Skeletor!

The film has been in the works for a long time and already been through multiple directors including McG and David Goyer, before finally settling on directors Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers)…. they have the power!

This will be the second live-action remake of the series after the 1987 film Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren.

No word on cast as yet but watch this space for updates.
