Bidding War: Amazon Studios Really Wants that Voltron Live-Action Film


Bidding is heating up on Voltron, a live-action version of the franchise, with Red Notice and Dodgeball’s Rawson Marshall Thurber attached to direct. The deal’s not done yet, but Deadline is reporting that Amazon Studios is in talks to be home to the giant robot.


Voltron is based on the Japanese sci-fi series that became the ’80s syndicated show Voltron: Defender of the Universe. It is about a group of pilots whose vehicles join together to form the giant robot.


Several studios have been in the mix on the property. Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are on board to produce with Bob Koplar. Ellen Shanman is writing the script with Thurber.


So who are we rooting for in this bidding war?
