First Power Rangers, now Voltron is getting the big screen treatment. Probably

November 5th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Well, movie over Power Rangers, here comes… Voltron.

Yes, you read that right, things seem to be moving on the Voltron live-action movie front.

Deadline are reporting the Universal Pictures and Dreamworks are developing the movie with X-Men and Watchmen scribe David Hayter working on it as we write.

I’ve confirmed Hayter is writing the live-action project that started at DWA, which is also generating the animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender for Netflix. The property is about a corps of astronauts that pilot a giant super robot.

So that’s all we have for now, folks… but Voltron on the big screen with big money behind it could be worth seeing.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
