John Woo is being lined up to produce and direct a new movie about cartoon superhero HE-MAN.

The legendary Hong Kong director will make the live-action film based on the animated series which first entranced children in 1983, with tales of Eternia and He-Man's battles with his nemesis SKELETOR.

Adam Rifkin will adapt the screenplay which is said to bear no relation to the 1987 movie MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE which starred Dolph Lundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor.
