Regrettibly so is Robotech, one of my earliest introductions to the wonderful world of anime. I first got word of this back in Sept. 2007 http://www.superheroflix.com/news/NE5Fq875B8XR88 and I figured it would remain on the back burner until the idea fizzled away, unfortunately new information has recently surfaced about Warner Bro's hiring Alfred Gough and Miles Millar to pen a script, the project originally had Lawrence Kasdan writting the script. I'm almost positive Kasdan has never heard of Robotech, but I feel he'd produce something better than the two guys responsible for the Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and Smallville...
I have no hope that this movie will do the source material (Super Dimenstional Fortress Macross) any justice at all, the fact that Warner Bro's is making a silver screen adaptation of an adaptation of three completely separate anime by a company that shouldn't hold any rights to the Macross franchise speaks volumes to this project. Tobey Maguire as Rick Hunter (Hikaru Ichijo for the uninformed) DECULTCHA!!!
If I hear Lynn Minmay sing "we will win", I will get up and demand a refund!
If your interested in this movie and don't know the difference between Macross and Robotech please go to http://macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=228 and learn! It will open your eyes to the difference between the Original work and a second rate mashup of three separate works with some glaring discrepancies in the story, characters and plot.
