New info regarding the Voltron live action movie. This post came from variety.com right here.
'Voltron' gets bigscreen goMark Gordon sets up robot film at New RegencyBy MARC GRASERTalk Back - post a commentNew Regency is looking to assemble its own giant robot movie.The 20th Century Fox-based production entity is close to a deal with the Mark Gordon Co. to adapt "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" into a live-action film.Gordon has been developing the pic, based on the popular 1980s Japanese animated TV series, comicbooks and toy line, with Justin Marks penning the script.Should the deal close, project would be one of the company's more high-profile efforts since Robert Harper took over as chairman-CEO of Regency Filmed Entertainment earlier this year.Interest in the property hit a high after "Transformers" turned into a box office juggernaut, raking in nearly $300 million to date.New Regency, which hasn't had a major hit since "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" in 2005, sparked to the idea of a potential franchise.Company's upcoming pics include "Alvin and the Chipmunks," the Doug Liman-directed "Jumper," the Alexandre Aja-helmed "Mirrors" and the Eddie Murphy starrer "Starship Dave."Marks' take is described as a post-apocalyptic tale set in New York City and Mexico. Five ragtag survivors of an alien attack band together and end up piloting the five lion-shaped robots that combine and form the massive sword-wielding Voltron that helps battle Earth's invaders.Gordon will produce with Lawrence Inglee and Jordan Wynn, who are shepherding the project at the Gordon Co., which has Roland Emmerich's "10,000 B.C." bowing next from Warner Bros. Mark Costa and Ford Oelman are exec producers."Voltron" pic has been in the works for nearly three years, with Jim Young's Animus Films funding its development.Marks has become a go-to guy in Hollywood for comicbook, videogame and toy-based adaptations.He is adapting "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" for Joel Silver at Warner Bros., as well as the Green Arrow pic "Supermax," also at the studio. Marks also has "Street Fighter" in the works at Hyde Park and Fox.

...I have to wonder if they think that if Transformers was successful, so would these movies...they need to damn realize that the only reason it was successful in quality is because it never needed the "human element". GI Joe and this's core was the human element and since they're probably not going write their asses off to try to ensure a Oscar-nomination, I really have no faith in this either...

So basically it's going to be like Transformers. You take the hook of the IP and then fill in the rest with disposable Hollywood crap.I am not sure if I should weep or just get pissed. Hell, maybe I will just do both.
