In an article at The Hollywood Reporter talking about how UTA is taking on Voltron and its U.S. rights-holder World Events Prods. as clients, the trade gives an update on the movie:
Voltron also recently was set up as a feature with Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment and Jason Netter’s Kickstart Prods.; UTA is expected to help bring a writer aboard and begin shopping the project to studios.
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.
