Said to be left off by New Recency, the adaptation movie of the popular Japanese anime, 'Voltron', has found a replacer, Relativity Media.

Good news is rushing towards "". Despite allegedly being ditched by Fox-based New Regency Pictures, the feature film project about a giant mecha robot protecting the Earth has been said to be picked up by Relativity Media.

By that, it means that Relativity will both finance as well as produce the live-action movie which has been developed since 2004.

The story is set in New York City and Mexico. Meanwhile, the helmer will be determined soon.
