From Spiders to Robots

According to IGN and other, there is a live-action Robotech movie in the works starring Peter Parker AKA Tobey McGuire.

IGN describes the movie as:

a "sprawling sci-fi epic," and reveals that it takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off three successive waves of alien invasions. The first invasion concerns a battle with a race of giant warriors who seek to retrieve their flagship's energy source known as "protoculture," and the planet's survival ends up in the hands of two young pilots. Maguire would presumably play one of the pilots.

Looks like we will be getting plenty of Giant ****ing Robots in the future thanks to the success of the Transformers. I for one am cool with that.

Okay, Robotech, that's about every anime fanboy's dream. I can't wait to see if they'll get it right. But the only thing I really want to see is the SDF1 Transformation sequence that is going to be freakin awesome.

SDF1 probably won't be in the first movie. Sounds like they just finished making a couple of the Mechs.

I would love to see Battletech/Mechwarriors on the big screen.
