Masters Of The Universe’s journey back to the big screen takes another step closer to reality with Columbia announcing a writer with Marvel credentials is on board.

Christopher Yost is the man with the task of turning Mattel’s line of toys (and subsequent cartoon series) into a cinematic blockbuster that’ll wipe clean our memories of  Dolph Lundgren in a loin cloth wandering around modern day America like a slightly embarrassed cosplayer in the 1987 film.

Yost has worked on both Thor: The Dark World and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. The Masters Of The Universe reboot has been gestating at Columbia for what seem like an Eternia now (see what we did there?) but it looks like He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Cringer/Battle Cat and co will finally return to cinemas.

Yost’s toughest challenges must be making He-Man not sound like the cheesiest character name ever and making Cringer not irritating.

Earlier this year when it was announced that Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) had completed a draft of the screenplay. Before that, Pirates Of The Caribbean scribe Terry Rossio had a try. No director has yet been named.

Masters of the Universe follows Prince Adam, who has the ability to transform into a warrior called He-Man. As He-Man, Adam becomes the last hope for a magical land called Eternia, ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor.
