    I'm guessing this is partly because of Speed Racers bad performance.

    Loved by good, feared by evil, dropped by movie producers.

    No, not really, it's more so because FOX never actually got the rights from Toei. Toei is the ass of all Japan when it has to deal with international distributions, or adaptations.

    They might as well go ahead and make the film, regardless if its FOX or
    somebody else. Hollywood is running out of ideas and that is why they
    are filming remakes and making movies from old TV shows and there has
    been a increase of movies from comic books and graphic novels.

    So they dropped Voltron in order to have money to sue WB for Watchmen? Well, it could be a reason. :)

    It was probably going to be a good movie, there fore Fox has to stop it at all costs. I'm still surprised they didn't cancel Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    Thats a damn shame, I liked Voltron. On a semi related note, is there any word on Macross/Robotech live action? I heard that got picked up with a couple of others after TF pummelled the box office.

    Well that's almost a shame, honestly. I hadn't heard alot about Voltron's live-action film, but to hear its been dropped completely is kinda a relief and disappointing at the same time.
