Sony Pictures has brought screen writer Richard Wenk (16 Blocks, The Mechanic) on board to take a crack at reworking the initial He-Man script entitled Greyskull(Written by Alex Litvak and Mike Finch).
Based on the popular Mattel toy line, Greyskull story line was reported to follow a young prince named Adam, who becomes a warrior and sets out to defeat the evil Skeletor and fulfill his destiny as He-Man.
Let’s all hope that this isn’t another Conan like reboot. I don’t know if my inner child can take another one of those kinds of disappointment.
It’s usually a long way from getting the script ready to actual casting, but we can speculate to our hearts content. Who do you want to see in the title roles of He-Man and Skeletor? Cast the movie in the comments section below.
Sylvester Stallone and his muscle-throbbing, old-man action-star crew is back in the testosterone filled sausage-fest known as The Expendables 2. The film, directed by Simon West and written by Sylvester Stallone, David Agosto, Ken Kaufman and Richard Wenk (apparently it takes four guys to decide what blows up, who lives who dies…etc), is set for a August 17th, 2012 release. Lionsgate has released a new teaser trailer. Instead of showing off any actual action, it’s more like a roll call of who’s who in the action world. You know… in case you forgot Van Damme, Norris, Stallone, Arnold, Lundgreen, Willis… are in a single movie. You’re gonna have to stock up on HGH come time of release, because there is just too much macho for you’re puny ass to witness.
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal…
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time – six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.
That is done the Expendables way….
The Expendables 2 will be released in theaters everywhere August 17th, 2012.
