It’s been off and on for years now, but it seems the classic Manga series Robotech is finally moving forward.
Deadline are reporting that the movie is being developed by Hollywood Gang Productions, the Warner Bros company who made the 300 movies. It will be penned by GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘s Michael Gordon. Rumour has it that Mama director Andy Muschietti is being sought to helm.
Robotech was actually made up of three animated series – The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA- which were all combined to make a series that could air daily. It was about giant robots that were made on earth from the technology of a crashed alien ship and then, in turn, used to fight of further alien invasions.
Transformers fans from back in the day may also recognise the robots as the original Jetfire toy from the 80s toy line.
We’d love to see this happen… and we can’t wait to see the toy line!
