'It' Director Andy Muschietti Set To Helm 'Robotech' For Sony

18 Juillet 2017

While his highly anticipated movie version of Stephen King's "It" doesn't bow for another two months, Andy Muschietti looks to have already found his follow-up, attaching himself to Sony's adaptation of "Robotech". 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. Muschietti will now direct and executive produce alongside his sister Barbara (Mama) and Gianni Nunnari (Shutter Island) and Mark Canton (300: Rise of an Empire). 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.

Hollywood has been trying to bring the mechas to the big screen for over a decade, with Sony picking up the rights in 2015. Andy Muschietti, the director of the upcoming horror It, is set to go from the world of scary clowns to the action-adventure universe of giant robotic machines. David Hopwood will oversee for Canton while Shannon Gaulding is overseeing for Hollywood Gang. The movie's trailer scored one of the largest views ever in a 24-hour period, with prerelease interest at stratospheric levels.
