Toby Maguire set to star in Hollywood Robotech movie

Warner Bros. (along with Maguire Entertainment) have picked up the production rights for the mecha-driven Macross hack-job “Robotech”; the intention being to churn out a live action “tentpole” franchise based on the sci-fi epic, funded as a reaction to the $311 million dollar success of Transformers.

Actor Toby “Peter Parker\Spiderman” Maguire (who owns “Maguire Entertainment”) claims “We are very excited to bring ‘Robotech’ to the big screen… There is a rich mythology that will be a great foundation for a sophisticated, smart and entertaining film.”

Unsurprisingly, Maguire is being touted for the lead role.

Ray’s take: Well, let’s just hope they can at least get the names of the mecha right. So they’ll have Maguire playing Ichijo. I wonder who they’re going to cast for Minmay? What? Yeah, of course I know it’s a remake of “Robotech”, which is why I’m not going to expect much out of this one. Well, at least they’ll have live actors who can actually act and sound right. That, my friends, is certainly is a plus.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
