"Voltron" is Back on Track

Posted: July 20th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Voltron" is Back on TrackSubmit Comment
Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven (The Dark Knight), Richard Suckle (The International) and Steve Alexander have acquired the rights to make a live-action feature based on "Voltron," pushing the project forward after several years in development with the Mark Gordon Company.

"Voltron," a television hit in the 1980's that has retained a loyal fan following, features a "Transformers"-like conceit, in which a band of five robot-lions combine to form one super lion. A group of five pilots control the lions, which are charged with defending the planet Arus from villain King Zarkon, who dispatches evil creatures called Robobeats to fight the Voltron robots.

The new movie has not yet been set up at a studio. Atlas has an overall deal with Warners, which has been seeking an action tentpole to rival Paramount's "Transformers" mega-franchise.

In describing the property, producer Ted Koplar compared it favorably to "Transformers," saying that "unlike other robotic action movies, 'Voltron' is the personification of the human spirit, a quality that will set this movie apart."

I second that. I always thought that Voltron was just like Transformers... make the toys first, then make the show around them. Perfect marketing, perfectly sad.
