Lionsgate's Predators must be sitting well with the other studios, as Columbia Pictures has hired the same scribes to pen Masters of the Universe.

Masters of the Universe Gets Writers


Mike Finch and Alex Litvak have been hired by Columbia to get started on writing Masters of the Universe, a property that that the studio only picked up the rights to last fall after Mattel bounced on Warner Bros. due to some differences of opinion on the creative end. In their pitch, the scribes attempted to balance a treatment that would convince the studio it was cinematic and keep the toy company satisfied that its characters were being portrayed appropriately.

The '80s series centered on blond warrior Prince Adam, who, after uttering the magic words "By the power of Grayskull, I have the power," turned into the heroic He-Man. He and his allies -- Battle Cat, Man-at-Arms and Orko -- defended their planet Eternia from the evil forces of Skeletor, who week after week attempted to conquer the fortress Castle Grayskull, which imbues He-Man with his powers.
