The "Masters of the Universe" reboot seems to have found its He-Man.
Noah Centineo is reportedly poised to play the character portrayed by Dolph Lundgren in the 1987 original. A source tells TheWrap he is in negotiations for the role. The project comes from Sony Pictures and Mattel Films, and per Variety, Sony is keen to have Centineo involved in another project after his work in the upcoming "Charlie's Angels" reboot. Sony has not commented.
The 1987 film was based on a line of toys from Mattel and starred Lundgren alongside Frank Langella, Meg Foster, James Tolkan, Christina Pickles, Billy Barty, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Courteney Cox. It centered on He-Man's battle against the evil Skeletor (Langella) in the land of Eternia. The reboot's script comes from Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, after executive producer David S. Goyer penned an earlier draft. Brothers Aaron and Adam Nee will direct.
He-Man would be another major role for Centineo after he stole millions of hearts with the 2018 Netflix rom-com "To All the Boys I've Loved Before." The actor has been cast as in multiple films since then, including "Charlie's Angels," "The Perfect Date," and "Valet."
Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce.
