Robotech movie coming?


When I was kid I was Robotech nuts, and as a teen I was a big fan of its successor Macross Plus.  The Robotech movie is unfortunately one of those things that is an 'on-again-off-again' affair, well now apparently it's on again. had this to say:

80s anime series Robotech has long been linked with a Hollywood film adaptation. Over the years there's certainly been no shortage of people linked with the project. That said, the last we heard of a possible feature though was back in 2013, when Nic Mathieu was apparently in talks to direct the film.
Back then, other people involved were Tobey Maguire, Akiva Goldsman, Joby Harold and Matthew Plouffe. But it seemed to come to nothing, and from what we can gleam, the assorted personnel have now moved on.
Moving forward to now, though, and there appears to have been progress on a Robotech movie.
New producers are attached to the project, with Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton now trying to shepherd Robotech to the big screen. And they've already hired Michael Gordon to pen a screenplay for them.
They're also believed to be targeting Mama director Andy Muschietti to helm the film. For a while, Muschietti was set to direct Universal's reboot of The Mummy, that Alex Kurtzman is now calling the shots on. Muschietti departed that particular project last May.
More on Robotech as we hear it. It sounds like the project might just have a bit more momentum behind it this time...
