G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon Chu is currently in the process of developing the long awaited new big screen adaptation of Masters of the Universe. One day the movie will get made, and when it does, I hope it turns out incredibly awesome! As of right now no casting decisions have been made but in a recent interview with Getty Images Entertainment the director says he wants wants Dolph Lundgren to have a cameo in the movie,
I don’t know if Dolph Lundgren is around or what he’s doing but, yeah, I think that could be some fun if we could find a way. I hope he still has the loin cloth and the long hair and everything.
He must not have seen The Expendables films, because Lundgren is alive and well and kicking ass! Lundgren starred in the original 1987 He-Man movie that holds a special place in my heart because I loved that movie as a kid! I watch it now and it's so bad and cheesy. But as a kid who owned all the toys including the He-Man torture slime playset, I absolutely loved it.
In one of the previous interviews Chu gave he said the script for the film blew him away. "I had no idea what to expect but it was such a fresh, UNEXPECTED approach I was immediately intrigued," Chu explained. "I never expected to connect on a human level to a MOTU movie but I really plugged in emotionally." Now that G.I. Joe is set to be released this month I imagine Chu is currently hard at work bringing this movie to life. To read more about what Chu had to say about the He-Man movie he plans on making click here.
