The writer behind The Dark Knight will not be helming Sony’s Masters Of The Universe reboot, as David S. Goyer has exited the He-Man adaptation due to scheduling conflicts. As the hunt for a new director begins, Goyer will remain on board as executive producer, as he also wrote the script that he was set to direct.

Goyer had been in talks to direct the film ever since last November when he turned in a draft of the script and Sony asked him to step behind the camera. Unfortunately for He-Man, this is the second director to step away from the Masters Of The Universe project. McG was originally attached to helm the movie when it was given a release date, but he dropped out back in April 2017. The film, as it stands now is still scheduled for release on December 18th, 2019, but Sony is going to have to work fast if they are to find a replacement and get the Masters Of The Universe reboot in front of cameras on time.

The writer/director continues to stay busy, especially on the small screen. Goyer is an executive producer on SyFy’s new Superman prequel series Krypton. It was his adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy that forced him to leave the Masters Of The Universe project due to scheduling conflicts. A miniseries adapted from the famed author’s most iconic work is a big undertaking for anyone.

The Masters Of The Universe reboot is based on the popular Mattel toy line that spawned an animated TV series (1983-85) as well as a 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren. The reboot has seen other filmmakers come and go during its development, including G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu and McG. Set on the planet Eternia, the story follows a warrior named Prince Adam who turns into the heroic He-Man and battles a villain named Skeletor out to conquer Castle Grayskull.
