According to the Hollywood Reporter, Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire may prefer the mask of a giant robot – he and Warner Brothers are teaming up to produce a live action version of Robotech, and he may star as well, with the intention of creating a new franchise. WB has purchased the rights already and will work with Harmony Gold, the overall rights holder. Although Robotech was actually three very different anime series edited and dubbed to make it seem like it was a single epic story, it will be interesting to see how that plays out in this situation. Most likely they will focus on the Macross Saga – the first part of the series.
