ROBOTECH Finds Its Director In IT Helmer Andy Muschietti - What's That Mean For JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK?

It's being reported that Sony Pictures has found a director for their adaptation of the classic anime Robotech in IT helmer Andy Muschietti, who was previously being courted for Justice League Dark.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sony Pictures has tapped Andy Muschietti to helm their upcoming film adaptation of the '80s anime Robotech.

The story takes place in a time when Earth has developed giant robots from technology collected of an alien spaceship that crashed on a South Pacific island. These robots are then used to defend mankind when the planet is threatened by an alien invasion. 

Last we heard, James Wan had signed on to helm the long-gestating project, but according to this report, he chose to drop out due to his commitments on Warner Bros.' next DC solo feature Aquaman, which is currently filming in Australia with stars Jason Momoa & Amber Heard in the lead roles. 

Muschietti, whose past credits include Mama & It, was previously rumored to be the frontrunner to land the Justice League Dark directing gig, but it's now uncertain whether those talks are still ongoing or whether WB has decided to go in a different direction. With San Diego Comic-Con just around the corner, let's hope we get an update one way or another by the end of this weekend.
