Last we heard about the Masters of the Universe film, Jon M. Chu was being targeted to direct the film, having since signed on, and now Richard Wenk has signed on to re-write the screenplay (via Variety).

Wenk is known for having written 16 Blocks, The Mechanic, and co-writing The Expendables 2 with Sylvester Stallone.

Sony and Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch have been developing the property, based on the popular Mattel toy line that originated in 1982 and spawned several animated series along with a 1987 live-action film.

The film follows Prince Adam, who transforms into a warrior called He-Man and becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.
