Not much more than that was offered by the site breaking the news (save that the most recent script was liked by Escape Artists, the production company shepherding the development of the MotU film.)

Predators screenwriters Alex Litvak and Mike Finch have been hired by Columbia Pictures to write a new script for Masters of the Universe. Of the duo's hiring, The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog states, "In their pitch, the scribes attempted to balance a treatment that would convince the studio it was cinematic and keep the toy company satisfied that its characters were being portrayed appropriately."

Film rights for Mattel's Masters of the Universe have now been purchased by Columbia Pictures. Escape Artists (Knowing, The Pursuit of Happyness) is being eyed to develop the property for the studio. And while he had been mentioned a couple of weeks ago when the property departed Warner Bros., director John Stevenson is no longer involved with the project.

Variety's report doesn't go into the same level of detail as Latino Review's about the contributing factors that led to WB growing cold with the property but the trade does mention that it appears director John Stevenson will remain attached to the film as Mattel takes the screen rights back to shop them elsewhere.

Warner Bros. still has the movie rights to Mattel's Hot Wheels, again with Silver Pictures developing.
