20th Century Fox-based production company New Regency has partnered with the Mark Gordon Company 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, comic books 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.

Gordon is producing with Lawrence Inglee and Jordan Wynn shepherding the project. Mark Costa and Ford Oelman are executive producers.

Marks is also adapting He-Man and the Masters of the Universe for Joel Silver at Warner Bros., as well as the Green Arrow pic Supermax, also at the studio. Marks also has Street Fighter in the works at Hyde Park and Fox.




this could be as close to big budget power rangers movie as I'm going to get (excluding the first film which was ok-budget)

It won't be as good as Transformers. Voltron is a poor man's Transformers.

you do realise of course that Voltron was made first right? like back in 81-ish , transformers was made 86-ish.


That's like saying "Star wars" is a poor man's "Battlestar Galactica" where 1 star wars came first and 2 they have similar concepts (as voltron and transformers) but are nothing alike (like voltron and transformers)


Voltron and Power rangers have more in common than Transformers and Voltron.



















oh and the poor man's transformers is go-bots

but on the plus we are getting Voltron , He-man and a Street Fighter film that can't possibly suck as much as the van dam version.


Plus been in Mexico and USA might not be that bad. I'm looking forward to it.
