Frontrunners for the New He-Man Movie?

Back in October of 2004 it was announced that John Woo will direct and produce He-Man, a live-action film based on the characters in Mattel’s “Masters of the Universe”. Now The Daily Telegraph has posted a rumor on who may be the frontrunners:

[Ryan] Kwanten is one of the frontrunners to play He-Man in an upcoming film version of He-Man, due to be released in 2006.

The actor’s profile has risen of late due to his starring role in the US series Summerland, but he’s facing some stiff competition from Sex and the City hunk Jason Lewis and The Rock.

Adam Rifkin is adapting the screenplay for the Fox 2000 movie.
