It seems like we have been being teased about a live-action "Voltron" movie now for about a decade. Well, actually since 2008 to be precise, but it has seemed like forever.
Now, finally, the thing is going to be made by Atlas Entertainment, who took over the project from Fox-based New Regency, who went as far as to hire a director for the film (Max Makowski) then backed away from the project. Atlas is apparently kicking things into high gear on this one. Reportedly the studio has hired Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the screenplay for "Voltron" and had Swedish artist Andree Wallin produce three, very cool looking, pieces of concept art. One of which is above.
Since the film is still in it's infancy there isn't much else to report at this point, unlike New Regency, Atlas hasn't rushed out to find a director for "Voltron" before they have all their ducks in a row.
We can only hope that the studio takes this one seriously, and from the concept art it looks like they very well might, so that they don't try and hand us some more of the same old "Transformers" crap.
