Voltron Update: No Script, No Director, Back in Development Hell
The boys at Coming Attractions got the chance to visit World Event Productions, the home office of the “Voltron” movie, and came away with some news about the upcoming film. In short, it’s still in development, but there have been some major changes since last we heard.
Most important of all is the news that the script by writer Justin Marks, which is set on a post-apocalyptic Earth, is no longer in play, and the movie is officially in “reboot” mode in terms of development. Also, director Max Makowski, who was recently attached to direct, is no longer onboard. Along with those news, there are still no cast attached, which is not surprising given that, well, they’re back to square one.
So what does all this mean? Mainly that a “Voltron” movie probably won’t be set on a post-apocalyptic Earth as originally thought, and it’s going to take another couple of years for any further movement. So where now? I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but for now, “Voltron” is still very much still stuck in development hell.
Coming Attractions also has news about the upcoming “Voltron” animated TV show, so head over there to read more if you’re interested.
