There's new blood at Castle Grayskull.
Writer Evan Daugherty has been given his first big job and it's to do a re-do of Grayskull, the live-action Masters of the Universe movie in development at Warner Bros. Silver Pictures selected neophyte Daugherty to get a fresh handle on the story after dismissing the draft that Justin Marks (Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li) did.
The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Daugherty got the attention of Hollywood by entering the contest held by Script Pimp where aspiring screenwriters submit their best script and the winner gets looked at by some real players in the 'wood. Daugherty's script, Shrapnel, got put on the Black List, the annual round-up of the best unproduced screenplays as picked by the readers working for agencies and studios. Someone at Silver must have read Shrapnel, liked it, and that combination of luck and circumstance is all it took for Daugherty to land the assignment.
So Evan, just between us, does He-Man wear a loincloth in your story?
