Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is in talks to direct a live-action Masters of the Universe film over at Sony, according to Deadline. Talks are ongoing as Chu continues the 3D conversion of Retaliation for Paramount. Most people are probably familiar with Masters of the Universe from its '80s animated incarnation, titled He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

If Chu accepts this job, he will have brought two of the most popular properties of the ‘80s to the big screen between his G.I. Joe and He-Man movies. According to the site, the Masters film revolves around how He-Man becomes the last hope for a magical world that has been ravaged by the sinister Skeletor.
