Warner Bros. Sign A Director For ROBOTECH
You might say, no Robotech, no Pacific Rim - and you could add a Hell of a lot of other properties while you're at it. According to THR, Nic Mathieu has been chosen to helm a big-screen adaptation of the classic robots VS aliens Anime..
For those not familiar with Robotech...just read the Pacific Rim synopsis! But seriously, this anime paved the way (unless I'm mistaken?) for the whole giant robot VS Alien malarkey that seems to be such a big trend in Hollywood right now. The movie has actually been in development at Warner Bros. since 2007, and has seen a host of writers come and go, but this is the first time a director has officially been signed. Akiva Goldsman and Tobey Maguire will produce along with Matthew Plouffe, Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell. This will mark Nic Mathieu's - a commercial director - first movie gig, but he is also attached to direct The Wind, a David Keopp-written sci-fi project that WB picked up on the strength of his presentation. It looks like we're in for a lot of metal-V-alien carnage over the next couple of years. You game?
