New Regency has thrown “that other robot movie” into turnaround. ‘Voltron,’ based on the Japanese animated TV series from 80s, was being produced by Relativity Media, and is now looking to replan the project with a more moderate budget.
The script was written by Justin Marks, writer of films ‘He-Man,’ and ‘Green Arrow,’ both films also in development. Marks’ script takes place in New York City and Mexico, where five survivors of an alien attack come together to battle in five lion-shaped robots that form the sword-wielding Voltron.
Voltron had been in the works prior to the launch of Transformers.
