If you know how to write, and write well, the UTA may be interested in having your agent contact their agent as the rep company is helping to bring a writer on board for the upcoming Voltron movie.

The agency hopes Voltron’s widespread brand recognition and elaborate mythology, which have served properties like “Transformers” well but doesn’t necessarily exist with other board games and toy properties in development, will appeal to audiences and executives.

The pitch is expected to include the idea that, unlike other toy brands, Voltron — in which five robot lions piloted by humans become a giant warrior — allows for human-centric stories.

If you’re wondering what other toy related movies might be coming down the pipe, I suggest you take a walk down the toy aisle at your local Duckwall, as there a good chance that RonCo Daisy Spinner transforming action figure is next on the block.
