Robotech is taking another giant step towards fruition as Warner Bros. locked down a highly-touted scribe for the highly-anticipated film.
The studio has tapped Jason Fuchs to write the screenplay. Fuchs did well for the studio this year, as a co-writer on Wonder Woman (along with Allan Heinberg and Zack Snyder). Previous scripts by Fuchs include Pan and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Andy Muschietti, still riding the wave of success that came withIt, signed on as director a couple months ago. According to Deadline, Muschietti and Fuchs will work together to create the new script "from scratch."
Based on the 1980s anime TV series, Robotech "takes place in an era when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology of an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific island. The residents of the third planet from the sun are now using that converted tech to fight off an impending alien invasion."
There is no timeline yet for when Robotech will go into production. But it likely won't get started until after Muschietti has finished the It sequel.
What do you think, is this the team to bring a giant Robotech tentpole movie to the big screen?
