Buried lede: Why is it taking 14 years to excrete a HE-MAN movie?

I am in an awesomely cranky mood right now, mind you. But I feel that this is a valid response to this news:

After developing a Masters of the Universe film since 2007, Sony is apparently considering making the project for Netflix, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The outlet reports that studio chairman Tom Rothman is in preliminary talks as Sony decides between finding a studio or financier partner for the He-Man project, or go with Netflix in a “safe deal.”

For the love of God, people. Nobody’s expecting Scorsese-style cinema here! The fan-base for a HE-MAN movie is made up of people who like things like this.

That’s only two years younger than the current HE-MAN project, by the way. Apparently they’re having trouble putting it together, for some strange reason. I don’t even know why they want to make a live-action version at this point. Just animate it up like they did She-Ra* and be done with it.

    After 2 failed attempts to revive the franchise, I can’t blame them.

    Not enough fiber.

    Really. There’s not enough fiber in the Masters of the Universe to make a movie. It’s a dude running around in furry shorts chasing another dude running around in furry shorts. It’s just that the second guy is painted blue and has a skull face.

    Like I said. Not enough fiber.

    And this is coming from a huge fan who had all the toys.

    I think the choice of verb, which is how the last one was produced, answers the question.
