Charles Roven

It’s been a while since we have heard about the possibility of a live action version of the 80s cartoon Voltron. Back in October of 2009 it was reported that The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven was working with rights-holder World Event Prods. to get a movie on track, and also there was some business with UTA assisting them in bringing the product to multiple platforms. In general, it was the typical Hollywood quagmire of company names and rights issues, and who knows what. But now, quite a while later, things seem to be moving in a more concrete direction. Roven, still involved with the project in some way, has helped bring the rights over to Relativity Media. They now apparently have a live action Voltron movie optioned, and they’ve brought on Thomas Dean Donnelly (Conan the Barbarian) and Joshua Oppenheimer (Sahara) to write a screenplay.


As if it were gift wrapped and sent with chocolates, this story win’s this week’s award for most pun-prone news item. Apparently The Flash movie isn’t moving so fast…
