Noah Centineo’s He-Man Pic Set for 2021 Release

Noah Centineo’s take on Mattel warrior He-Man is coming to theaters in spring of 2021.

Sony Pictures has set a March 5, 2021 release date for its fantasy adventure “Masters of the Universe,” which Centineo will lead as the Most Powerful Man in the Universe.

Masters of the Universe” is based on the highly successful He-Man toyline, which served as the basis for an animated TV series (1983-85) as well as a 1987 film. He-Man is the alter ego of Prince Adam, who uses the magical Power Sword to transform into a powerful warrior and battle the villainous Skeletor with the help of his allies Teela, Man-at-Arms, Orko and The Sorceress. Dolph Lundgren starred in the original movie as the title character, while Frank Langella played Skeletor.

Aaron and Adam Nee are set to direct the Mattel Films production from a script rewritten by “Iron Man” screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The Nee Brothers also have screenwriting credit. The project was previously written by David S. Goyer, who is also an executive producer. Producers are Escape Artists principals Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch.

Centineo has starred in Netflix’s “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” opposite Lana Condor, as well as “Sierra Burgess Is A Loser.” He will reprise his role in “To All The Boys 2” and will appear in “Charlie’s Angels” as Langston opposite Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska later this year.
