Director of the Universe?

I hate posting uncredited news stories from websites that don’t name their sources, but Latino Review has just been too damn accurate to dismiss. At any rate, they’re saying that not only is the Masters of the Universe movie not dead, but it just acquired a director in John Stevenson, who just helmed Kung Fu Panda. I didn’t see Kung Fu Panda, but it got near unanimous great reviews, so if this is true I imagine it’s a very good thing. No one seems to know if he’ll use Justin Marks nerd-acclaimed script, but I’ve got my fingers crossed. .

Nerd hope springs eternal, doesn’t it? Sigh. I’m guessing the only people who are happier than I am are the execs at Mattel, who are probably hitting the bars early today in celebration of massive potential sales for 2010.
