John Stevenson, co-director of Kung Fu Panda, is to make his live-action debut with an adaptation of cartoon series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Contactmusic.com reports, Stevenson will direct a "gritty fantasy" version for Warner Bros and Silver Pictures, from a script written by Justin Marks.

The 80s fantasy show told of Prince Adam's transformation into the heroic He-Man thanks to the magical powers of the fortress Castle of Gray Skull.

Owned by toy maker Mattel, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was a hugely successful animated series but became a flop film in 1987, in a version starring Dolph Lundgren and Frost/Nixon star Frank Langella.
