Rossio In, Chu Out of Masters of the Universe

Rossio In, Chu Out of Masters of the Universe

The savior of "G.I. Joe", has left the project. In even worse news, it's now gained another writer whose credits include this summer's great disaster, "The Lone Ranger."



Source: 'Lone Ranger' Co-Writer Tapped to Write 'Masters of the Universe' (Exclusive)

This bit of news today feels like an  actual Frogurt situation. The in-developmental hell Masters of the Universe movie has a new writer, Terry Rossio (as revealed per The Hollywood Reporter). He joins a long list of other writers trying to bring life to a movie that now has no director. Jon Chu, who was once attached to direct the project has now dropped out, no doubt to direct G.I. Joe 3

It's obvious to this reporter Chu probably came to the realization that there would be no way he could ever top the original live-action Masters of the Universe (1989). So he dropped out. It's a realization many whom been attached to this project have come too.  How can you truly top cinema-pefection such as this:

 

 

 

 

The answer is simple, you just can't.

You know Chu could have actually tried to do a real Masters of the Universe movie, instead of the original, which was really a Jack Kirby Fourth World movie wrapped in a MotU blanket.

We will never have a Jack Kirby Fourth World movie. The '89 movie was the best we'll ever get. You know what I say to be true. It'll also be the best version of Skeletor and He-Man. The casting will never be as ever aligned as they were then.

So by hiring the wrong writer are they secretly hoping this movie bombs or something whenever it ever comes out?

I remember back in the late 90's there were rumors in Wizard about a Bruce Timm style New Gods animated movie from Warners. Too bad it never happened.

I suppose they basically just used those ideas in JLU's final season.

Firstly, I don't know that he's the "wrong writer". Yes, he's been attached to some movies that may not have been great, but there are several of them were commercial successes (the first Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin, Shrek...none of the sequels, I noted).

Second, how many movies only have one writer? Furthermore, they're always going to deal with directors, executives, and sometimes even actors insisting on their own ideas making it into the film, regardless of if it makes sense or fits the narrative.

Third, a friend of mine mentioned some time ago that studios can tell if a movie is going to bomb before they release it; the example he used was Green Lantern. According to him, they'll screen the movie, fully aware of how bad it is, and send it to nationwide theatres anyway. Why? I'm not sure. One theory I have is that, depending on the property, they probably know there's an eager fanbase waiting and willing to see the film just to see it. And/Or, it's a way to recoup what they spent on MAKING the film on the first place. After all, if you spend $10 million making a movie, but you project making only $5 million releasing it, isn't making half back better than nothing from not releasing it?

I'm not saying Roccio is the perfect choice, or that I like/have seen all the movies he's worked on. I'm just saying that he doesn't seem to be so consistently bad that it means he's the sole reason a MotU flick will/could fail.

Because Warner stupidly believes that almost all DC films should be about Batman, Superman or JLA.

Well hopefully I will be wrong if this movie ever comes out.
