Barbie headed to the big screen, He-Man finds a new home

by

It’s bad enough H’wood is actually making View-Master the movie, now Mattel’s most famous toy, Barbie is getting a feature, too.  Universal Pictures won the rights to the live action treatment, with Laurence Mark, of Jerry Maguire fame, producing the flick.

Meanwhile, on Eternia…

He-Man got some sad news a couple of weeks ago, when Warner Bros. and Mattel parted ways, but the big galoot has stumbled his way into a new home at Columbia.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on which side of the paycheck your are sitting on, all of the previously prepared content has been scrapped.  This means the script and all the pre-production will need to be rebuilt from the ground up, so hopefully Columbia knows what it is doing.
