The 22-year-old actor is in talks to play He-Man in Sony Pictures and Mattel Films' Masters of the Universe live-action reboot, according to The Wrap.

He would go on to star in a pair of hit Netflix romantic comedies, Sierra Burgess is a Loser and To All the Boys I Loved Before. The subsequent He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon series made its titular hero into an '80s icon. Iron Man scribes Matt Holloway and Art Marcum rewrote the most recent draft of the film.

We had already reported that Sony Pictures and Mattel Films was developing a film based on this franchise. Centineo would play the dual roles of Prince Adam and He-Man - characters who, like Billy Batson and Shazam, are seemingly distinct entities before a lightning strike initiates a change. He uses the magical Power Sword to transform into the heroic He-Man warrior.

Sony's Masters of The Universe has found its He-Man in internet sensation Noah Centineo. He-Man is allies include Teela, Man-at-Arms, Orko and The Sorceress. Aaron and Adam Nee are going to direct the movie, which doesn't yet have an official start date.

Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will produce through their Escape Artists company, as well as DeVon Franklin.

Mattel executives Julia Pistor and David Voss will also serve as executive producers on behalf of the toy company.

Masters of the Universe has had a long run to make it to the big screen. This would be He-Man's first live-action outing since the much-maligned Dolph Lundgren version from 1987. Also a fun fact this was one of Courtney Cox's first movie roles.
