MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Lumbered With THE LONE RANGER Co-Writer; Loses Director
Hiring the co-writer of one of 2013's biggest commercial and critical failures to work on Masters of the Universe is a smart idea, right? Oh, and as if that wasn't bad enough, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director John Chu is also no longer attached to direct! Read on for details.
The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that Terry Rossio - co-writer of The Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean movies - has been brought on board by Columbia Pictures to work on the screenplay for Masters of the Universe. Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing, while the site mentions that the film was at one point going by the name of Grayskull. Regardless of what it ends up being called, it no longer has a director; G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer John Chu has departed the project. Michael Finch, Alex Litvak and Richard Wenk all worked on previous drafts. How do you guys feel about this news?
