A live-action adaptation of 1984 animated series Voltron: Defender of the Universe is slated to hit the big screen. Relativity Media announced that the studio has optioned the feature film rights for Voltron from World Event Productions. The project was brought to Relativity through its deal with Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, whose company will shepherd the project.

The live-action film will be produced by Roven (The Dark Knight) and Suckle (The International), along with Kickstart Entertainment’s Jason Netter (Wanted). World Events Productions’ Ted Koplar (Voltron Force) will executive produce. The script is being penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly (Conan the Barbarian) and Joshua Oppenheimer (Sahara). World Events Productions was represented in the deal by UTA.
