With GI Joe director John M Chu withdrawing from the He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe reboot, the director’s chair on the re-imagined 80s cartoon/toy phenomenon has been left empty.

According to Schmoes Know, Sony have lined up meetings with a geek-pleasing shortlist of potential directors including Attack The Block‘s Joe Cornish, Looper‘s Rian Johnson, Mama‘s Andy Muschietti, The Croods‘ Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders and 21 Jump Street‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
