Amazon is reportedly in negotiations to pick up a live-action film adaptation of the 1980s anime classic “Voltron: Defender of the Universe”.

“Red Notice” filmmaker Rawson Marshall Thurber is attached to direct the feature he co-wrote with Ellen Shanman. Todd Lieberman, David Hoberman and Bob Koplar will produce.

News first came last month that a bidding war had erupted with Warners, Universal and several others in the mix to land a package that has now arrived on Amazon.

Co-edited and dubbed for the western market from the Japanese science fiction series “Beast King GoLion” and “Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV,” the original “Voltron” cartoon centered on five young pilots in a battalion called Robot Lions, who are vehicles that team up together. to form a mega robot known as Voltron.

The show has maintained a cult following in the decades since and saw reboots for NickToon in 2011 and Netflix in 2016. DreamWorks at one point tried to develop animated features.
