ROBOTECH live action movie producer Chuck Roven
talks to IESB.net
about the film in this video snippet
from the Spike TV's Scream 2008 Awards.
Here's all I really took away from this, personally ...
Since Roven said they want to start shooting next year, if Tobey Maguire's shooting two Spider-Man movies
for Sony in the very near future (one of which will certainly come out in the same summer as ROBOTECH), I'm thinking he may have to pass on playing Rick Hunter, or any other possible lead role.

for the link.)
(Also, I would've used a less totally generic pic, but I couldn't find one I liked, and the video wasn't cooperating when I wanted to take a screen grab.)Late morning update:
Hm, then again, Sam Raimi apparently told MTV
last week about the next Spidey flick, "I don't have a script yet, but production would start probably by March of 2010
, I'm guessing." (Emphasis mine, see here

.) If ROBOTECH remains on track to start shooting in '09, as Roven suggests, I guess Maguire could yet hop into that big-screen Veritech Fighter cockpit before putting the red & blue webbed tights again. The earliest reports on the next Spider-Man
movies suggested they might start filming in Fall '09.
