Hi everyone, I just read that Voltron is coming to the big screen and thought some of you might be interested. There are only 2 pieces of art on the movie so I don't think it's far into development.

They also mentioned they are working on an adaptation of Uncharted.

Images were too large to attach so just visit the website to see them.

So I know it's only September 16th and all, but it kinda feels like Christmas morning. That’s because when I opened up my Macbook just now, an insanely cool visual treat from a trusted source was just sitting there, patiently waiting in my inbox like a hungry kitty (that weak metaphor will become a sly pun by the end of this story).
Lets face it. After the 'Fallen' got their 'Revenge' on us last summer by duping us into spending our hard-earned coin on a lackluster TRANSFORMERS sequel, it quickly became apparent that Optimus and Co. were already starting to gather a bit of rust. But for those anxiously awaiting an heir apparent to breathe fresh life into the massive-metal-monster genre, it looks like the oft-rumored VOLTRON movie may finally be gaining some traction.
It appears that Atlas Entertainment has taken the reins on the project and is gearing up a pretty impressive pitch. Apparently, they've hired the currently hot screenwriting tag-team of Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. The names may not sound familiar to you, but they might soon. The duo wrote the upcoming CONAN flick, and are currently scribing the DR. STRANGE and UNCHARTED: DRAKE'S FORTUNE adaptations.
Now for that whole "Christmas morning" part. The highlight of the pitch comes in the form of a handful of wicked (and carnage-heavy) concept art. Looks like they're definitely not prepping a Saturday morning cartoon for the kiddies. Check out the JoBlo.com exclusive images of Voltron and Robeast tearing our planet to shreds now (click to see them in hi-res) and here's hoping we get more feline [COLOR=green ! important][COLOR=green ! important]robot[/COLOR][/COLOR] exclusives in the future!
