Fuck, I thought it was some joke, but this news coming from Hollywood Reporter, I facepalmed.

The only ones who are going to love this development are those hardcore Macek apologists and that Yune carpetbagger running HG; I believe that even up to his demise Macek kept on insisting that claim he created the show, and insultingly viewed Nue as mere "hired hands".

Of course this thing will never see the light of day in Japan.

Well, there's an off chance that people in America will finally Remember Love.

Or it could just be about killing aliens with starscreams. Either works.

Robotech: rise of the Starscream clone army against xenomorph rejects, plus racial stereotypes & Bon Jovi songs that does not fit with the tone of the movie.......

I know a few people that like Robotech but cannot handle Macross (or at least anything beyond the orignal). Almost specifically because of the idol singing fixation (and Macross 7 didn't help either).

Well, to each their own.

Say, do you happen to know a good supplier around here for pitchforks, torches, and good firewood?
I'm probably gonna need a few thousand.

I've met loads on model-building forums. It seems to be a sizable group of fans. They tend to like Macross Plus as well. Same arguments all the time: idols are equaled to moe characters and magical powers have no place in serious sci-fi.

I reckon it's a fanbase made up of people that love 1970s/80s syndicated cartoons (made in Japan) and those that can't connect with modern (late night) anime.

Macross ain't Macross without defeating the enemy through the power of LOVE .

It's blasphemy to blast Macross for being cheesy and unrealistic!

So unfortunately yeah, we're probably never going to see SDF Macross in America. That would take not only HG to surrender the license and kill their own Robotech, but also for Tatsunoko and Big West to kiss and make up. I have hopes for the other Macross titles that HG didn't touch though (especially since some leaked through in the... 1990s? Once the movie is released and hype dies down/everyone forgets Robotech again, maybe someone else will do a roundabout Western release of other Macross titles).

James Wan Confirmed to Direct ‘Aquaman’ & ‘Robotech

Quote:
THR reports that Wan has now closed deals to direct both Aquaman and Robotech, following the outstanding $1.5 billion box office gross of Furious 7, and will also be overseeing the script for Aquaman as screenwriter Kurt Johnstad puts it together. It’s little surprise that Wan is so in demand after steering the latest instalment in the Fast & Furious franchise to almost double its predecessor’s performance, and the positive reviews that Furious 7 received should put most Aquaman fans (and Robotech fans, of course) at ease, knowing that these movies are in capable hands.

Aquaman is among the best known DC superheroes and the character has a very long history, but as the name suggests his powers are tied to the ocean and he has the ability to communicate with and control sealife. Momoa will make his first appearance in the role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Robotech, meanwhile, is a long-running science fiction franchise that began with a 1985 anime series, in which humanity uses recovered alien technology to build giant transforming machines designed for intergalactic warfare.

This news marks the continuation of Wan’s rapid climb into the action blockbuster genre, after fairly humble beginnings directing low budget horror movies. His best known films prior to Furious 7 were Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, all of which proved to be highly profitable and spawned at least one sequel apiece (many sequels, in the case of Saw). His directing style might not be for everyone, but there’s no denying that Wan knows how to appeal to an audience.

Speaking of those sequels, Wan is currently committed to direct The Conjuring 2: The Endfield Experiment this fall, so don’t expect to see Robotech until at least 2017. If Wan chooses to concentrate on Aquaman first (which is likely, since it’s further along the development road than Robotech), it could be much longer than that.
Well, looks like it's still happening .

I never saw either Robotech or the original Macross (not to mention the other two Japanese shows), and I don't really enjoy love triangle stories that much, but I guess I can check this out. If there is a love triangle element, hopefully it would be toned way down.
