Director Sylvain White was at the San Francisco WonderCon convention to promote his upcoming film The Losers, which arrives in theaters on April 23, and he also spoke about a new project he might be undertaking. IESB.net spoke with White about his rumored involvement in the film project Robotech. Here's what he had to say.
IESB: Can you confirm or deny the rumors about Robotech?
White: (Laughter) What are the rumors?
IESB: That you are directing.
White: It's not a project is green lit. It's a great cult series. When it came out, I saw it in France when I was growing up - saw it in French. Its an amazing cartoon. I hope it comes to fruition. (Laughter)
IESB: So that's a yes? You are doing it?
White: I'm interested in doing it. The project is not fast tracked. There is no official thing. They sent me a draft and I liked it. It's a work in progress.
Q: Is it about the Macross saga?
W: It's the first generation.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further news on this project as soon as we have more information.
