The rumors of a live-action Robotech movie have circulated for years, but lo and behold, this morning I see the following at ICv2.com:
Lawrence Kasdan Adapting ‘Robotech’
According to The Hollywood Reporter screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, who penned Return of the Jedi, The Empire Strikes Back, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, has been hired to write the screenplay for Warner Bros.’ live action Robotech film.
Hot damn! Return of the Jedi aside, those are some excellent scripts to flaunt (not to mention The Big Chill as well), and I trust Kasdan to deliver a script that adapts Robotech well to the screen and keeps the theme and tone of the series. Now they just need to get a good director and we’re on!
