No strangers to writing sci-fi, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have been announced as the writers adapting Robotech for the big screen.

A sprawling sci-fi epic, “Robotech” takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off an alien invasion, with the fate of the human race ending up in the hands of two young pilots.

Gough and Millar are probably familiar to Smallville fans where they spent time as the show runners for the series.  They also worked on Spider-Man 2, and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

There’s no word on release date.

    Let’s hope they don’t screw it up. Personally, I would rather prefer an animated Macross movie over this.

    Angelia Jolie? Hmmmmmmm….not too sure about that. She doesn’t strike me as the “high-brow” intellectual, spit-and-polish type (which Lisa Hayes’ charater was).

    Lisa Hayes was in her mid-late 20’s at the start of the “Macross Saga” (Rick Hunter was about 18-19) and had a Western European ancestry (aka: caucasion). Whoever plays her needs to be a intellectual snoot combined with the polish of a professional officer. It wasn’t until the end of Macross Saga when Lisa got a crush on Rick Hunter (eventually marrying him 10 years later in the “Robotech–Sentinals” series, and having a child at the end of the series).
