Robotech, an anime in the 80s adapted from three different series for an American audience, has been in the pipeline for years. Different teams of directors and writers have been trying to get a film adaptation going but were never successful. But Warner Bros thinks it’s about time to try it again. Perhaps it’s due to the success of big mech films like Pacific Rim overseas?
According to Deadline (via /Film), Hollywood Gang is producing the film with Michael Gordon (300 and G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) set to write with an interest in Mama director Andy Muschietti to direct. That’s all we know about the project since it’s in very early stages, but maybe it’ll work out this time? I’ve never seen the anime myself, but I assume it could be neat given a good budget.[via /Film]
