A few weeks ago, we reported right here on this very site that the He-Man movie was all but dead. We were wrong. And by “we,” I mean, “me.” Apparently, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is very much alive and, according to LatinoReview, John Stevenson is the likely director. He was a co-director of Kung-Fu Panda, which made an obscene amount of money at the box-office, fully guaranteeing that anyone associated with it would be paid scads of money to do anything, talent be damned. Still, no one has been mentioned for the lead role, but I’m going to just put this out there for you folks to chew on: Javier Bardem. Think about it. He has already displayed an ability to wear a bowl haircut well:

In other geek friendly news, last week we announced that Joe Johnston would be helming Captain America: The Rise of the G.O.P. This week, it’s been announced that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are negotiating to become the screenwriters for the flick. Those two were responsible for writing The Chronicles of Narnia, so they are a great fit for Captain America, since they’ll be able to bring their religious zealotry to a character already well known for his right-wing beliefs. I’ve also revised my opinion on who would make the best Captain America, and in doing an image search for him, it looks as though I’m not alone: Mark Valley, who played a Republican on “Boston Legal,” so he’s also well suited to the role.

Finally, for you horror geeks out there, one of last year’s very best films — horror or otherwise — the Korean monster movie , The Host, is getting an American remake. Boooo! The Host just seemed so unrelentingly Korean. It’s just not gonna translate well here, in part because American directors have a hell of a time effectively doing horror-comedy, particularly horror-comedy that is so unbelievably terrifying, as was The Host. They haven’t exactly recruited A-list folk for the remake, either. While Gore Verbinski will produce, a commercial director, Fredrik Bond, will direct, while Mark Poirer, who wrote the disappointing Smart People, will pen the script. Here’s an idea: Don’t.

Here’s a scene from the original. Hang on to your cinegalia.
