Wall Street vs Eternia: Will Centineo He-Man Movie Be Scuttled By Short Squeeze?

Posted By themoviesleuth 1172 days ago on Entertainment - Just as rumors of a reignited live action He-Man and the Masters of the Universe reboot from brothers Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers, The Last Romantic) have started back up, more events in our continuously churning  news-cycle may potentially impact this oft-delayed, Noah Centineo-starring project.Netflix-heartthrob Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Sierra Bluegrass is a Loser) has long been set to star as Prince Adam/He-Man in the Sony Pictures film that was originally announced last year for a spring 2021 release, with Noah even updating his beefing-up for the role on social media over the summer.The project had seemed to lapse into an unofficial dormancy over the industry-wide effect of the ongoing pandemic, with a small hint of rumblings over the last few weeks that the movie was back “on”.However, the current flurry of mainstream interest in the Wall Street/Reddit/GameStop stock market surge has put Centineo in serious talks with Netflix (who also have a separate, animated He-Man sequel-series in the works from Kevin Smith) to star in a Social Network-type dramatization of the event. Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) is set to pen the script.How this development affects the He-Man production is yet unknown, though Centineo is still likely a solid lock-on to play Atom Smasher in the upcoming DCEU Black Adam live actioner, directed by Jaume Collet Serra (House of Wax, The Shallows, Jungle Cruise) and starring Dwayne Johnson in the titular role.Check back with The Sleuth for more updates.You have the power!MR   (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ?
