Relativity Media has announced that the the studio has optioned the rights for VOltron, with plans to send the property to the big screen.

In Voltron, an elite battle force defends the fate of mankind in the spectacular action adventure. 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.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the news that Voltron was getting a feature film, and each time production seems to stall. This time it looks like there are a number of producers behind the live-action film including Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven, Richard Suckie, and Kickstart Entertainment’s Jason Netter.

The movie is being written by Conan the Barbarian scribe, Thomas Dean Donnelly.
