"Voltron" Moving Forward 


Remember this 80s treasure? "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" is now going to be a feature film, and is being put on fast track.

It's being produced by Fox-based New Regency.

According to Variety , New Regency picked up the rights to the property, adapted by scribe Justin Marks, who's behind Warner Bros.' bigscreen versions of "He-Man" and "Green Arrow."

Marks' take is described as a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico, where five survivors of an alien attack band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth's invaders.

The success of "Transformers" is bringing all these robots out into the open!
