Jon M. Chu Discusses Masters of the Universe

Jon M. Chu, director of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation", has been keeping busy with the franchise and even has a third film lined up.  However, something else has caught has got his attention these days - the  "Masters of the Universe" movie. 

"The script for 'Masters of the Universe' is what really hooked me. I love 'Masters of the Universe,' but I didn't know necessarily how to make it into a movie until I read the script and thought, 'Oh my gosh, I totally see it. I get how this is going to shake it up, I get how this is different from any other thing,' and it got me really really excited.

We're still working on that one and 'Joe' has momentum right now. The audience has been great and they want another one, so we're rushing to get that done and Dwayne has a certain time period so it may end up that 'Joe' goes first in all those things and I don't know if 'Masters of the Universe' will wait for me or where that's going to end up.

But right now it's been great. We've been designing a ton of stuff for 'Masters of the Universe' as a really beautiful, grounded, honest world - that's the best way I can describe it. It's everything you want 'Masters of the Universe' to be in terms of the fantasy but not in a way theatrical crazy way. It is actually a gorgeous world that we're doing in the initial visual concepts that we've been making."

"Masters of the Universe" is slated for a 2014 release.
