RUMOR: KICK-ASS 2 Director Jeff Wadlow Front-Runner For Sony's MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Reboot?
SchmoesKnow have been apparently keeping an eye on the race to direct The Masters of The Universe reboot. This reboot was setup at Warner Bros., but after development stalled it was moved over to Sony Pictures. The original director Jon M. Chu, left to focus on making The Jem movie and G.I. Joe 3. The names previously mentioned included Robot Chicken's Chris McKay, who was recently hired to make the sequel to The Lego Movie.
They now claim that candidate Jeff Wadlow has already signed-on to direct. Wadlow is best known for writing and directing Kick-Ass 2, and was tasked by Fox to write the X-Men spin-off X-Force. I'm a bit hesitant to believe this is the real deal. Schmoes' source has been giving them a lot of scoops, but the results haven't been there quite yet. Consider this news is a rumor. If true, this could mean Wadlow won't be directing X-Force anytime soon, or Fox might look at another director.
