Remember how Harmony Gold was working on a live action Robotech movie? Someone’s been trying to make this film since 2007. The current iteration was first announced by Warner Bros four years ago, and then sat quietly for two years before they reassured everyone it was still happening. Only about a month after that though, the movie got shuffled over to Sony. And then we heard nothing. For years.
But this is apparently still a thing that is totally happening, though we’re not entirely sure why.
In any case, there’s actual news as Sony has announced the film has found its director in Andy Muschietti. Muschietti is fresh off the forthcoming remake of Stephen King’s IT, and his sister (and creative partner) Barbara Muschietti will be joining Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton as a producer. Nunnari and Canton have been with the project for quite some time already.
Maybe this is the thing that will finally make this movie happen, and maybe it isn’t. In either case, I still find myself wondering “who the heck is this movie for?”
