After years of ups and downs, it looks like Sony’s reboot of Masters of the Universe may finally be moving forward. The Wrap is reporting that Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) is in final talks to portray He-Man. The report doesn’t mention if he will also portray Prince Adam, but it’s likely. Centineo has a role in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot, which has supposedly impressed Sony enough to offer him the role.
Masters of the Universe is being directed by Aaron and Adam Nee, from a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. There is currently no production date set for the film.

The figure will be available alongside the rest of Super7’s Masters of the Universe and She-Ra figures and accessories, and will be featured at their SDCC pop-up. Hit the jump for a small refresher on the meme, as well as a look at the full figure.
