James Wan Robotech

James Wan is a director who is in high demand. The Conjuring solidified his name in the horror genre, while Furious 7 showed that he doesn’t pigeonhole himself. Now it looks like he may take stab at the sci-fi genre with Sony’s Robotech.

Back in February, WB revived the project by obtaining the rights to the film. However, the rights moved over to Sony. Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton (300, The Immortals) will produce the film, while Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) is writing the script.

With WB unable to figure out what to do with their DC Cinematic Universe, this would be the perfect opportunity for Sony to lock Wan in with a franchise deal. The director is also a frontrunner to direct Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa. The film is also in the middle of a three-way script competition. Universal reportedly wants him back for Fast and Furious 8, which is due for a April 2017 release. Despite the number of studios that are interested in the director and the number of projects that he is attached to, THR says that WB and Sony are willing to wait. But with schedules and deadlines to meet, one of the films will very likely not be directed by Wan.

Based on the anime of the same name, Robotech was first launched in the 1980s in Japan, and was eventually adapted for a US audience by Frank Agrama and Harmony Gold. In the series, humans have adapted alien technology found on the South Pacific Isle, and used it to create giant fighting machines, often referred to as Mecha. These mecha defend Earth from the waves of extraterrestrial threats.

The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist opens in theaters on June 10, 2016. Aquaman and Fast and Furious 8 opens in 2017. No release date has been scheduled for Robotech.
