Fans React to Noah Centineo Cast as He-Man

Noah Centineo

The movie is based on Mattel's now-iconic toy line, which spawned the 1983 animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

The "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" heartthrob, 22, is in talks to play He-Man in the upcoming "Masters of the Universe" flick from Sony.

A previous live-action film was created with Dolph Lundgren starring as He-Man in 1987.

The film will likely tell the story of Prince Adam, planet Eternia's heir, who uses a magical sword to turn into the powerful warrior, He-Man.

David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) was once attached to write and direct, he still remains aboard as an executive producer. With the help of his allies Teela, Man-at-Arms, Orko and The Sorceress, He-Man defends the kingdom from the evil wizard Skeletor (so-named because his face is an exposed skull), who seeks to gain control of Castle Grayskull, source of He-Man's powers. The film is expected to be directed by Adam and Aaron Nee.

Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce through their Escape Artists company, as well as DeVon Franklin.

Noah Centineo in talks to play He-Man in Masters of the Universe movie

Centineo appeared in last year's To All The Boys I've Loved Before for Netflix, and is also set for the reboot of Charlie's Angels, with Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Patrick Stewart and Elizabeth Banks, due out later this year.

This is not the first time that Masters of the Universe has been adapted as a live action film.

Noah Centineo is headed to the big screen once again!

The cartoon was previously brought to the big screen in 1987, with Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, and, bizarrely, veteran United States actor Frank Langella as He-Man's greatest foe, Skeletor.

The news of Centineo's new project comes on the heels of the announcement that he is now in production for the follow up to Netflix's 2018 hit, To All the Boys I've Loved Before.
