Chris Yost to write Masters of the Universe script

Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have tapped Chris Yost to do a rewrite on its reboot of “Masters of the Universe.”

Previously was the the head writer of the Marvel animated series The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and co-writer (with his frequent collaborator Craig Kyle) of the comic book series X-23: Innocence Lost, X-23: Target X, New X-Men, X-Force. and Scarlet Spider (Volume 2). Yost was a member of the Marvel Writers Program and one of the screenwriters of Marvel Studios Thor: The Dark World which was released in 2013. Marvel was so impressed with his work on the first two films in the franchise that they tapped him to co-write the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok with Craig Kyle.

Terry Rossio and Jeff Wadlow wrote previous drafts of “Masters of the Universe,” which is being produced by Escape Artists principals Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch.

Set on the planet of Eternia, the story follows a warrior named Prince Adam who has the power to transform into the heroic He-Man. His nemesis is a villain named Skeletor who seeks to conquer a fortress known as Castle Grayskull in order to learn the secrets held within.

Filmation/Mattel’s He Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon ran from 1983-85 and was popular enough to spawn a movie starring Dolph Lundgren, Courtney Cox,  and Frank Langella which did not live up to expectationsv.
