Warner Brothers to Shoot Live Action Robotech Movie

Robotech to become a live action movie (Image via Robotech.com)
By Shane McGlaun

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.

    Nice article. Yes, I agree that Robotech was much more worth watching than Transformers. I hope they make the movie something that will live upto the high standards set by the series.
