After a long development cycle, and rumors that spanned for year, it appears we are indeed going to get a Robotech movie. And possibly more than one.

Sony Pictures has secured the rights to the Robotech franchise, and they have one goal, “the intention of moving quickly toward production of a future global franchise”!

Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton, and Michael Gordon are set to provide the screenplay. The goal for them is to “bring their modern sensibility to the tentpole, reintroducing today’s audiences to the Robotech universe”. The project itself will be overseen by Doug Belgrad, Michael De Luca, and Matthew Milam.

“‘Robotech’ is unique in that it has always been a marriage of spectacle with human characters that seem drawn from life,” says De Luca. “That’s why we are so excited to be working with Mark and Gianni as we move forward on this project. With a history that offers an epic love triangle, a renegade hero, and a world on the brink of extinction, ‘Robotech’ offers a wide scope and a rich and impressive universe where the story possibilities are endless.”
