By the power of Greyskull, we finally have a date for the new “Masters of the Universe” movie from Sony to start shooting!
Production Weekly tweeted the news, announcing that pre-production was nearing completion, and the actual production of the movie would begin this summer.
The tweet was: “Updated production schedule and location for Sony’s MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, from the directing duo of Aaron and Adam Nee. Principal photography is due to get underway mid-July in Prague.”
The Nee Brothers previously co-directed “Band of Robbers,” “Clark Kent has a Dream”, “The Geniuses”, and a short titled “You Can Never Really Know Someone”, just to name a few of their works.
David Goyer is penned to write the script. No casting news has been announced yet, although I would not be surprised to see something like that revealed closer to SDCC 2019.
Sony originally scheduled this movie for release on December 18th, but the likelihood of that happening is up for debate.
