Like all the major studios, Sony Pictures is questing for new franchises — and after years of development, it might have one with the He-Man movie Masters of the Universe. But while the picture is on the calendar for release in March 2021, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that studio chairman Tom Rothman is exploring the prospect of getting risk-free cash for the pricey project by making it for Netflix instead. A studio source says talks are preliminary, but such a deal would make Sony the next studio after Paramount to start making movies belonging exclusively or almost exclusively to the streamer.

Sony has been developing Masters of the Universe since 2007, perhaps making it that much less appealing to sell given that the studio finally has a version that it wants to make. But Netflix has the series She-Ra and The Princesses of Power plus an upcoming Kevin Smith He-Man anime series. The Netflix negotiation is being handled for now by newly upped Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group co-president Sanford Panitch.

We have learned that (formerly) Sony’s ‘Masters of the Universe’ film will now be developed and distributed by Netflix. The film is currently projected for a late 2021-early 2022 release.

Sources say that the production budget for ‘Masters of the Universe’ is currently aimed to be around $130M, it is unknown if this figure has changed given the recent shifts with the film, however, once marketing and other costs are counted outside of the production budget, this film would have been a pricey bet for Sony Pictures. As of now, it is currently unknown what involvement Sony has with this project now but it is likely that we will discover in the coming months whether Sony has officially backed out of the project entirely or if they are still involved in some capacity.

Mattel Films will be working alongside David Goyer’s Phantom Four Films as two of the production companies behind the film. Goyer, who owns the production company, has been involved in the film for a long while. He wrote the first draft of the screenplay for ‘Masters of the Universe’ for Sony and was in talks to direct the film, however, he soon dropped out of the film and became an executive producer on the project, he has retained that title through many rewrites. Goyer will produce the film alongside Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, Julie Pistor, DeVon Franklin and Kevin Turen. Mattel Films is still involved with the project as they still work to get films developed on many of their IPs.

The Nee Brothers are still attached to write and direct the film with Noah Centineo still attached in the lead role for the film. Sony was previously eyeing to release the film theatrically in March 2021 however that release date has recently been pulled, with Tom Holland and Ruben Fleischer’s theatrical adaption of the ‘Uncharted’ video game having taken its release date place. Netflix is currently targeting a fall 2020 production start for ‘Masters of the Universe’ which means that a late 2021-early 2022 release is very likely for the film if it does indeed begin production in late 2020.

More than two years ago, there were reports that Noah Centineo was in talks to play He-Man in a Masters of the Universe movie that was heating up at Sony Pictures and Mattel Films. Now, Collider has exclusively learned that Centineo has exited the project, forcing the filmmakers back to square one.

Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers) are slated to write and direct the movie, which has seen numerous writers tackle the script over the years. David S. Goyer wrote an early draft, as did Christopher Yost and Iron Man scribes Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

Centineo had been nearing a deal to play Prince Adam, aka He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, who must fight the evil Skeletor to save the planet Eternia and protect the secrets of Castle Grayskull. "He is no longer attached to that project," a representative for Centineo told Collider on Thursday, though no reason was given.
