Wonder Woman Co-Writer On Board For Sony's Robotech Movie
It looks like Sony’s Robotech movie is finally moving forward, after years of waiting. Not only is Andy Muschietti directing the film fresh off the success of It, but Wonder Woman co-writer Jason Fuchs will write the screenplay for the anime adaptation. According to Deadline, Fuchs will be working with Muschietti to work on the film’s world, which will be built from scratch apparently.
Fuchs co-wrote Wonder Woman with Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder, and Allan Heinberg, who has a ton of experience writing for TV and comic books. Considering how successful Wonder Woman is, it’s easy to see why Sony would reach out to one of the film’s writers for the job. The film looks to be in good hands, so all we can do is wish them luck.
Anime adaptations haven’t exactly been treated well by Hollywood, so expectations for the film aren’t too high right now. With the Death Note movie garnering mixed reviews, it’s clear that Sony will have to step up when adapting this story. Then again, with movies like Pacific Rim doing well, it looks like the presence of big robots could ensure some success for Sony.
Currently, Robotech has no release date, so the film won’t be coming out anytime soon. In the meantime, fans of the original series can check out the new comic series from Titan Comics.
