Am I late on this or what?


You already know Pharrell Williams is obsessed with the sounds of the '80s.


Now the Neptunes producer is getting a chance to put his beats where his passion is as the producer of the soundtrack to the big-screen version of the 1980s giant-robot series "Voltron."



Williams, an executive producer on the film, will also score "Voltron: Defender of the Universe," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie is being produced by Mark Gordon ("The Day After Tomorrow," "Saving Private Ryan", based on a story about five maverick pilots who have to travel to the planet Arus to learn how to operate the massive Voltron, which is made up of five smaller robots. The giant robot is Earth's last hope in the fight against the Drule Empire.


"Voltron" is not the only '80s robot flick on the roster. Steven Spielberg is executive producing a live-action version of "Transformers," which will be directed by Michael Bay ("The Island," "Armageddon". That movie is slated for release on July 4, 2007.


"Voltron" and "Transformers" animated series both debuted in 1984, each spawning a huge toy phenomenon.
