Warner Bros.-based producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton (Hollywood Gang) are developing a live-action Robotech feature, the latest effort by Warners to get the project off the ground, according to Deadline.  Michael Gordon (G.I. Joe:  The Rise of Cobra) has been hired to write a new script, and the producers are looking for a director, according to the report.

Warner Bros. picked up the rights in 2007, and had Tobey Maguire attached (see "'Robotech' Live Action").  Back in 2013, Warners had even named a director, Nic Mathieu (see "Warner Bros. Names Director for 'Robotech'").  But with the new production team, the studio appears to be starting over, albeit on an apparently faster track.

A complete set of the U.S. anime series plus two animated features was offered on DVD in 2013 (see "DVD Round-Up: ...'Robotech'").

The biggest merch line in the U.S. is Palladium’s Robotech RPG Tactics miniature game, which reached the trade last fall (see "'Robotech RPG Tactics' Update").
