A live-action adaptation of the classic anime, Robotech has rumored to be in development for some time now, but now word on the status has been heard, til now. At Wondercon, IESB talked to Sylvain White about directing the film:
“I’m interested in doing it. The project is not fast tracked. There is no official thing. They sent me a draft and I liked it. It’s a work in progress.”
I’m a big fan of the series and can’t wait to if this film gets made. Of course this won’t get made the way the fanboys want, but it is an adaptation after all. If this were a few years ago I would have said that this would never work, but with the success of Michael Bay’s Transformers films I now have complete faith in this project.
