Comic-Con 2011: 'Voltron' live action movie in the works
"Voltron" -- kind of like "Transformers" -- capitalized on the mid-'80s obsession with robots and saving the universe.
From the press release:
Five young warriors are responsible for the future of the galaxy when they become pilots of a battalion of ultra-high-tech Robot Lions, powerful vessels with the ability to join together to form a fearsome mega-weapon known as "Voltron."
No word yet on a release date or potential stars. But since Shia LaBeouf seems to think he won't be doing any more "Transformers" movies, maybe he'd be interested in a little robot lion swashbuckling?
