Robotech, The Silver Screen Version


by Irma Arkus

Reuters reported that Warner Brothers acquired the rights to Robotech saga by Tatsunoko Productions. The 1980s anime classic will be remade into a monster production full of giant robots (yeey, giant robots!) and the writer to pen this down is none other than Lawrence Kasdan.

No word yet on what type of remake we are looking at, but my good guess would be to forsee a trilogy or a lengthier franchise of films resembling that of sucessful Lord of the Rings. After all the story itself is remarkably suitable for it: Robotech is an anime series devoted to production of mecha robots from alien technology, used to defend Earth from three major alien attacks.

No word yet if George Clooney will be playing one of the giant robots.
