Universal, David Hayter To Help Form VOLTRON For The Big Screen!
Such as it has been for well over a decade now with all sorts of rumors and long-outdated facts pertaining to the film whilst leaving the faithfuls high and dry of any hope. Well, the wait is somewhat over now with news from Deadline that reports Universal, in a package deal with Dreamworks Animation, is taking up the slack following efforts by Jeffrey Katzenberg prior to his departure from DWA as its CEO earlier this year.
X-Men and Watchmen scribe David Hayter is providing the script adapting the tale of a small squad of astronauts who find themselves as the core operators of five robotic lion-like vehicles that can combine to form one giant superhero robot. The report states that nothing is solid yet except that a script is being written and the higher ups at Universal will make a decision, though with franchises like Transformers, a Power Rangers reboot and a Robotech movie already in development, it's possible that Voltron may very well be a thing.
