Live-Action Voltron Movie Is In Development At Universal With X-Men Screenwriter David Hayter

on

Deadline reports when Universal Pictures bought DreamWorks Animation for almost $4 billion earlier this year, one of the projects it inherited was an in-development, live-action Voltron movie. Why would that be part of a DreamWorks Animation deal? Because that’s the team behind Voltron: Legendary Defender on Netflix, which recently announced a second season.

Deadline also reports that David Hayter, who previously wrote Watchmen and the first two X-Men movies, is working on the script. He’s also an accomplished voice actor, having done voices in Star Wars: The Old RepublicDragon Age: InquisitionMarvel Heroes, CW’s The Flash series (as King Shark), and most famously as Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series.

As the site notes, no further details on a Voltron movie are known, and Universal has not commented on it.

Voltron: Defender of the Universe (The original Voltron) aired in 1984 and 1985, adapting an anime called “Beast King GoLion” and another, unrelated anime called “Armored Fleet Dairugger XV” – there were a lot of giant robot anime in the 70s and 80s, especially once Transformers became a worldwide hit, and many of them got repackaged for the US.
