It's been awhile since we've had a status update on the big screen adaptation of Voltron. But today we've learned from World Event Productions vice president Robert Kopla that it's still is in active development!
It’s currently in development with Relativity Media. Josh Oppenheimer and Thomas Donnelly are working on the script and they have some cool ideas. It’s going to be a big action adventure flick and we’re really excited about it. We have some talented producers on it.
Relativity Media officially announced the film last year at Comic-Con, so a year later it's nice to hear that things are still moving forward. Like many of you, I grew up on the original series, and a live action film has the potential to be extremely epic! I hope it's done right, and after seeing what Guillermo del Toro is doing with giant robots in Pacific Rim, I don't see how Voltron can't turn out insanely awesome - unless the script and story sucks, and unfortunately for us, the screenwrters working on the script also wrote that god awful Conan reboot script.
In Voltron, an elite battle force defends the fate of mankind in the spectacular action adventure. Five young warriors are responsible for the future of the galaxy when they become pilots of a battalion of ultra-high-tech Robot Lions, powerful vessels with the ability to join together to form a fearsome mega-weapon known as "Voltron."
