LOS ANGELES, July 19: ‘It’ director Andy Muschietti is set to helm Sony’s forthcoming adaptation of “Robotech”.
The movie has yet to tap a writer, but it will be produced by Andy’s sister Barbara Muschietti along with Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, reported Deadline.
The project is based on the 1980s cartoon series from Harmony Gold USA and Japan’s Tatsunoko Productions.
The story of “Robotech” is set in a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology of an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific island and is now using that technology to fight off an impending alien invasion. (PTI)
