Sony Pictures have set a date for their live-action He-Man & The Masters of the Universe reboot but without a director, according to Entertainment Weekly. Director McG, who has been attached to the project since 2016, has reportedly left the production just as a December 18, 2019 release date has been set. Comic book movie veteran David S. Goyer, however, has reportedly been hired to write a new screenplay.
According to the Hollywood trade, Sony is currently meeting with various unnamed directors and actors for the film. Last June, it was confirmed that Twilight alum Kellan Lutz met with the studio about portraying the titular lead, but no casting decision has been made.
