I really really hope they get it right and do it well. Grew up as a kid watching this on Sat mornings.

This has been teased since for as long as I can remember.

Just need Disney to buy out Harmony Gold and bam ... a Robotech movie every year.

They'll probably butcher it anyways. Some goofball writer will probably think he knows best, completely bastardize Macek's basterdized work ... so no one will enjoy it, and the rest of us man-children who still remember the original will bicker and argue and cry about it over the internet.

Ok I'll stop now... :)

"... The latter film is slated for a July 2018 release date, so while Wan looks to be busy with that behemoth for the foreseeable future, it looks like Sony is willing to put ROBOTECH on the back burner until that film is done."

Yup .. ok, so it gets briefly mentioned, we've loosely assigned someone to the project who might be available to look at it 2 or 3 years from now.

Keep your expectations low.

They've tried many, many, many times to adapt this into a live action movie.
Can the latest attempt finally breakthrough?

Maybe, it's best to leave it alone.

Deadline missed that James Wan also closed a deal to direct Sony's Robotech adaptation but THR didn't

Still lots of time for it to collapse like all the previous attempts
Stop me if you've heard this one before

They need to put Shakira in the movie, as a singer and actor!

I would go see a live Macross movie based off the original TV series and movies. Not a fan of Robotech at all. But if it's made, there is hope for a Gundam movie. Well, I can hope anyway...

Too late. A live action Gundam movie was already done years ago.

A hollywood produced one I mean. Can you imagine them hiring Micheal Bay or some other hack to ruin that franchise?

No thanks. Just take at look how Hollywood have done to GIS; I doubt they can remotely match the 30years old "Macross - Do You Remember Love" movie. I can't hardly recall any top-notch SF/Mecha anime based Life action movie from either Hollywood or Japanese domestic studios.
