Voltron Sells Out

He may have been displaced on most kids' Top Bot lists by the Transformers, but don't count Voltron out just yet: The giant robot has been signed to United Talent Agency, who have big plans for him.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that UTA has taken on Voltron's US rights holder, World Events Productions, and plan to exploit the anime character throughout different media as much as possible. According to the report, video games and toy deals are in the works, but the priority is an animated series and the previously-announced movie project, which UTA will now help shop around studios. Is America ready for Voltronmania in 2011?
