IT director Andy Muschietti to helm long-delayed Robotech movie

Muschietti will not only be directing but also has been tapped to develop the feature.

No release date for Robotech has been announced.

Muschietti's creative partner Barbara Muschietti will join Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton in producing the project, which is based on the 1980s cartoon series from Harmony Gold USA and Japan's Tatsunoko Productions. The show tells a multigenerational story in which a series of galactic wars are fought between a variety of alien invaders and mankind, which is using advanced mecha technology. It was re-edited and re-dialogued to combine three Japanese anime series to give the producers enough episodes to air as a daily syndicated series.

China may punish Wanda over overseas investments
Entertainment has denied recent reports that funding from China's Dalian Wanda has been used for some of its recent acquisitions. Sunac did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Moreover, this was one of the first anime series that reached U.S. television.

After playing around in the dank sewer lair of a predatory monster in Stephen King's IT, director Andy Muschietti (Mama) will stomp into the realm of monster robots in the live-action Robotech movie. "Robotech" became so popular that it spawned several animated movies, console games, collectibles and toys, just to name a few.

However, the filmmaker decided to make "Aquaman" instead.

Eighth person at Don Jr.'s meeting with Russians identified
Balber said Kaveladze is a long-time USA citizen who speaks fluent Russian and has "never had any engagement with the Russian government in any capacity".


Sony Pictures has found a director for their Robotech film.

Muschietti's upcoming horror movie "It" will premiere in September from New Line Cinema.

Are you happy with Warner's choice of Muschietti, and do you think this is the essential piece of the puzzle to deliver an awesome Robotech flick to fans?
