It appears the domain name skeletor.com has been sold.
The Whois record, which was updated this week, now displays Sedo’s Domain Transfer Escrow Service. Because the domain name is currently in Sedo’s Transfer Service, it won’t be known immediately known who purchased it. Or, for that matter, what they have in store for the name of the villain in the Masters of the Universe franchise.
There is one possible theory that hasn’t received any press in the past year; that Columbia Pictures (owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment) is getting ready to start production on the Masters of the Universe film, after years of no failed attempts.
Last April, screen writers were added to the Columbia Pictures “Masters of the Universe” project, so with any luck, production will begin soon.
Sony Pictures owns the domain name skeletorthemovie.com, which it first registered in 2009. It currently re-directs to the Movies page on SonyPictures.com.
Here’s a look at the current Whois record for Skeletor.com.
