But now According to Collider, Centino has left the role forcing the filmmakers to find a new He-Man.
Masters of the Universe will be written and directed by Aaron and Adam Nee (Band of Robbers), but the film has also had problems with writers because numerous have tried to tackle the script including David S. Goyer who wrote an early draft, Christopher Yost, Matt Holloway, and Art Marcum.
A representative of Noah Centino told Collider “He is no longer attached to that project,” on Thursday without giving any reason.

The animated series followed Prince Adam, heir to the throne of Eternia who possessed the Power Sword, which transformed him into the most powerful man in the universe He-Man.
