I have some fond memories form my childhood of coming home after school and watching Robotech on TV. Back then I had no idea what anime was, but I had some of the toys and loved the show.
Sci Fi Channel is reporting that Warner Brothers Pictures has obtained the rights to turn Robotech into a live action movie. Toby Maguire of Spider-Man fame has signed on to produce the film through his new production company called Maguire Entertainment.
Sci Fi is also reporting that Warner Brothers intends to turn Robotech into a franchise to compete with Transformers and that Toby Maguire is possibly going to play the lead role in the film. I have to say I much preferred Robotech to Transformers when I was young, here’s hoping Warner Brothers does Robotech proud.
