‘Voltron’ gets bigscreen go

New Regency is ready to assemble its own giant robot movie. The 20th Century Fox-based production entity has partnered with the Mark Gordon Co. to adapt “Voltron: Defender of the Universe” into a possible franchise. Producer Mark Gordon has been developing the film, based on the popular 1980s Japanese animated TV series, comicbooks and toy line, for some time with Justin Marks writing the script. But interest in the property hit a high after “Transformers” turned into a box office juggernaut, raking in nearly $300 million to date. Marks’ take is described as a post-apocalyptic tale of survival set in New York City and Mexico. In the animated series, five Galaxy Alliance pilots control vehicles shaped like lions that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron robot in order to battle an evil menace.
