Robotech movie on the way?

January 28th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Maybe it’s because of Pacific Rim, but it looks like the long-gestating Robotech movie is coming…

Warner Brothers have hired TV ad director Nic Mathieu to handle the anime adaptation.

The story is set in the future whan mankind has developed massive robots based on techology from a crashed alien ship. These robots are used to defend the world from various alien races, including the creators of the original downed ship.

Akiva Goldsman, Tobey Maguire, Matthew Plouffe, Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell are set to produce. So far this is all that’s known about the project.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
