Move Over Optimus Prime, "Voltron" Is Coming

8/12/2007 2:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

VoltronYet another '80s cartoon is set to hit the big screen -- "Voltron." And I'll form ... the head!

New Regency is working with the Mark Gordon Co. to turn "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" into a live-action film. That formula worked out pretty well already this year -- "Transformers" anyone?

The studio also has "Alvin and the Chipmunks" scheduled for a December release -- and the writer of "Voltron," Justin Marks, penned the script for "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe."

As much as we'd love to rip these people and throw in a line like, "Doesn't anyone in Hollywood have an original idea anymore?" -- it's freakin' "Voltron," man!
