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.

Last February, Warner Bros. announced that a live-action Robotech was under development. The studio was eyeing Andy Muschietti (Shadow of the Colossus, Mama) to direct the film. Now comes word that rights to the popular anime series have moved over to Sony Pictures.

Variety says the studio hopes to move forward with Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton (300, The Immortals) as producers, and with Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) writing the script. No word yet on if the studio is still considering Muschietti as director. The project will be overseen at Sony Pictures by Sony Pictures Entertainment Group President Doug Belgrad, Columbia Pictures Production Chief Michael De Luca, and Sony Pictures Vice President of Creative Production Matthew Milam.

Robotech

After undergoing various stages of development, the long-gestating Robotech is being brought back to life over at Warner Bros.

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.

Hit the jump to see who Warner Bros. is eyeing to direct the adaptation.

We’ve got a treat for fans of the classic ’80s cartoon Robotech, with the first trailer for the Robotech 2-Movie Collection featuring a re-release of Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles and an all-new feature, Robotech: Love Live Alive. The DVD will be released on July 23rd, 2013.

Love Live Alive is partially set after the events of Robotech and follows the adventures of Lance “Lancer” Belmont as he recounts the story of the Third Robotech War and what happens after the end of the war. It’s based on a music video released only in Japan way back in 1985 and originally tied into the “Genesis Climber MOSPEADA” series that was used to create the third part of the original Robotech series. Alive is part of another plan to get Robotech restarted, and will hopefully pave the way for Robotech: Shadow Rising.

Check out the clip below now and let us know if you’re looking forward to more Robotech.

1. AFX Transformers Battle Damage Jetfire Bust

One of the coolest characters from Transformers 2 returns in his original form from the cartoon. Not only is this a really cool looking bust, but it also comes with a variant head to give it it’s original Macross/Robotech look. This is too cool for words, but I guess only if you’re like me and are both a Transformers and Robotech fan.

For that special lady in your life who’s as big of a Star Wars nerd as you are, pick up this unique paint job of one of film’s greatest villains.

For you fans of the epic animated series RoboTech, the original 1985 show is now available for portable nostalgic enjoyment on iTunes.

Last week, RoboTech Season 1: The Macross Saga was released, followed by RoboTech Season 2: The RoboTech Masters this week. Finally, on October 6th, RoboTech Season 3: The New Generation will be released.

RoboTech is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their homeworld against alien domination. The saga is told through the eyes of characters caught up in a series of wars that erupts when a mysterious spacecraft crash-lands on Earth at the turn of the millennium. The secrets of alien knowledge aboard this vessel were unlocked, leading to the development of “Robotechnology” and the creation of a vast arsenal of robotic “mecha” to defend the Earth against the alien threats that would eventually strike to lay claim to the mysterious power source known as “protoculture.”
