The movie is slated to hit the theatres in 2022. Centineo is also reportedly on board for a Netflix film about GameStop and a CIA spy thriller show from executive producer Doug Liman.

Previously, referring to his He-Man role, Centineo had spoken about the major transformation required for his role as he mentioned to ET saying, "It's a lot of eating." The actor had opened up about his diet for the He-Man role saying, "It's great, I'm not complaining, but, you know, if I'm honest, I eat so many eggs."
