Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures have hired newcomer Evan Daugherty to write the latest draft of Grayskull, the studio’s big-screen take on Mattel’s “Masters of the Universe” cartoon and toy line. John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) is attached to direct the adaptation.
Warner Bros. sees the big-screen version as a gritty fantasy and reimagines Prince Adam as a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.
Justin Marks wrote the previous draft.
