A live-action Robotech has been in the works for quite a long time. When we last heard about the project, Sylvain White, best known for Stomp the Yard and the forgotten comic book adaptation The Losers, was in the running to direct. He never officially signed onto the project.
The story is set in a future where humans have developed massive robots from a downed alien spacecraft on a South Pacific isle. Humanity is forced to battle waves of unrelenting invaders, while the fate of the planet has been put into the hands of two young pilots.
