Now, scriptwriters Mike Finch and Alex Litvak are yelling those same words all across Hollywood, as the duo with the apparent midas touch for 80's revivals, swap Predator for Skeletor, and sit down to script Masters of the Universe the movie.
While the trailer for July's Predators shows Columbia's film has landed in pretty safe hands, the duo have got a bit of a tightrope to walk in balancing the needs of the studio, and copyright holder Mattel. The toy giant has already pulled the film from Warner Bros., after repeated attempts to find a common "creative vision" failed.
A secret shame in my own video library, the 1980's MOTU live action movie, taking up space in a DVD discount warehouse near you, actually isn't half bad. As the clip above shows, while it wimped out on naming obvious Tri-Klops and Mer-Man inspired characters, Meg Foster more than makes up for it as the traitorous Evil-Lyn, and Frank Langella's Skeletor is just brilliant over-the-top, but awesome stuff.
Hint to Finch and Litvak on where to improve from there; "Battle Cat".
