Voltron Movie one step closer to being made

I know alot of us have been hearing on and off about Voltron for the last few years.   Like most movies, changes have occured which put the movie in doubt.   If you are like me, you dont really believe a movie is coming out til you see the trailer and its in the movie theater. 

Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven, Richard Suckle and Steve Alexander are ready to form “Voltron.”

The producers behind “The Dark Knight” , “Get Smart” and “The International” have acquired the rights to make a live-action feature based on the robot-lion property, pushing the project forward after several years in development with the Mark Gordon Company.

Producer Jason Netter of Kickstart Entertainment and World Events’ Ted Koplar are joining the Atlas trio in producing.

Last year, the Fox-based banner put “Voltron” into turnaround, and Relativity Media came on to finance the film as part of its single-picture business. But with the option from World Events set to expire, Atlas had the opportunity to step in and acquire rights.

Atlas’ “Voltron” has not yet been set up at a studio. The company has an overall deal with Sony, which  like other studios has been seeking a fresh action tentpole to rival Paramount’s “Transformers” mega-franchise.

In describing the property, 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.”
