Warner Brother's and Tobey Maguire acquiring the film rights to Robotech live action movie was September 6th 2007.

Tobey Maguire to Bring Robotech to the Big Screen

www.slashfilm.com/tobey-maguire-to-bring...h-to-the-big-screen/

Posted on Thursday, September 6th, 2007 by Peter Sciretta

Warner Bros has picked up the rights to bring the classic anime series Robotech to the big screen. Tobey Maguire is producing the film, with plans to star.

Robotech refers to the scientific advances discovered in an alien starship that crashed on a South Pacific island. With this technology, Earth developed giant robotic machines or mecha (many of which were capable of transforming into vehicles) to fight three successive extraterrestrial invasions. At the time of its broadcast, Harmony Gold also launched Robotech through a popular line of comics to be followed by novels, role-playing games, video games, comic books, toys, and other consumer products.

Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal Talk Spider-Man, Mistaken Identities

Mon., Nov. 23, 2009 3:12 PM PST by Josh Grossberg

ARTICLE LINK
au.eonline.com/uberblog/b155112_tobey_ma..._gyllehaal_talk.html



Tobey Maguire is still Spider-Man. And that ticks off Jake Gyllenhaal.

See, Gyllenhaal almost took over the superhero role in 2003 when Maguire's bum back had him sidelined. Maguire healed. Gyllenhaal still stews.

"People have very often said to me that I look like Tobey," Gyllehaal laughingly told us at the weekend press junket for their new film, Brothers, in which they play—yes—brothers. "To all those cab drivers in New York, I'm not Spider-Man!"

As for the guy who is Spidey, Maguire insisted there's no ill will between him and Gyllenhaal over the near-replacement in the big-bucks franchise.

"I got really excited about the idea of working with these guys [Gyllenhaal, costar Natalie Portman and director Jim Sheridan]," he said of the new Oscar-baiting sibling-rivalry drama, due out Dec. 3.

But inquiring minds really wanted scoop on Spider-Man 4. And this is what Maguire told us.

"In February or March we're going start [shooting]," he said of the sequel, set to hit theaters in 2011. But he was less forthcoming when asked about any plot spoilers and completely mum on the rumored villains (Dylan Baker as the Lizard? Rachel McAdams as Black Cat? What's the big role Bruce Campbell hinted at?).

Maguire did confirm that he is developing a big-screen version of the classic Japanese anime series Robotech with Warner Bros.

"We're working on it," he said.
Smallville scribes Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are cranking on the script, and Maguire may star, as well as produce.

But first, he will be working the Brothers publicity trail with Portman and doppelgänger Gyllenhaal.

Or as Gyllenhaal put it: "We really just made the movie so I could say I look a little different than Tobey."

Maybe it will shut up those cabbies.

'While he has no plans to quit acting -- "Spider-Man 4" is currently in the works -- more and more he finds himself focused on his company, Maguire Entertainment, and producing.

He is developing several projects including "Robotech," adapted from the classic Japanese animation series.

"It's challenging, to identify things, to set them up, to get the right people to help you develop them," he said. "I am a big fan of movies and I want to make 'em."

Sylvain white was approached by Warner Brothers to direct Robotech Live Action Movie.

Saturday, 03 April 2010 17:23
www.iesb.net/index.php?option=com_conten...nventions&Itemid=171




Awhile back, IESB had exclusively heard director Sylvain White was approached to direct the live-action film version of Robotech. If you'll remember, that's set up at Warner Brothers with former web-slinger Tobey Maguire producing (and possibly starring). So why didn't we run with that news-item immediately? Simple, we opted to wait for the right moment to strike...

Cut to earlier today, White was out and about at WonderCon to promote his latest The Losers along with the cast.

IESB point-blank asked White of the rumors for his directorial participation. He told our very own Gig Patta that he loves the series and yes, had been approached to helm Robotech.

He even went as far to say he's read a draft. Said script is an adaptation of The Macross Saga. That particular series centered on a war against the Zentraedi, a race of militaristic giant aliens.

He admitted he is interested, but was quick to point out the project hasn't been greenlit yet.

IESB will keep you informed on any updates.

DAVID ALDO TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE ROBOTECH MOVIE

David has been asked to write a song for the new Toby Maguire movie "Robotech" due for release in 2011 through Warner Brothers.

HEADS UP. EDITED ROBO TECH FOR ROBOTECH :P

www.davidaldo.com/


David Aldo bio.

Born in Wallsend, England. David Aldo emigrated to South Africa with his parents and two sisters in the
mid 70’s. David started performing at age 11. David has had 4 No.1 songs and was voted "Best Male Vocalist" in South Africa. David wrote “Madiba” for Nelson Mandela’s 80th birthday, which is included on a Cape Town tourism CD. After 7 solo albums and multiple compilation records David continues to touch people with his music. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Lisa and their two children Sherri and Christian.

David has written and produced songs for movies and is the voice on the ‘Armor All’ and 'Hidden Valley'
National TV commercials in the U.S.A. Most recently a Medicare PA in the US.

David's album 'The Times' was released through Fresh Records/Sony BMG and one of the singles
'What a fine day' is on MTV Europe and South Africa.

In December 2007 David filmed his 2nd music video
for 'The Times" called "Someday" in New York City. Both videos shot by director, Leon Melas. David is currently signed with Universal Music Group, and his album ‘Everything to me’ was released in September 2009.

In October 2009, David Aldo signed his first US publishing deal in Nashville with Murrah/Colton Entertainment.

David has been asked to write a song for the new Toby Maguire movie "Robo Tech" due for release in 2011 through Warner Brothers. He has also written music for the TV show “The Doctors” on CBS.

David list of celebrity clientele include Donald Trump, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Anniston, Dustin Hoffman, Lionel Richie, Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Russell Crowe and Tom Selleck. David performed at Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s wedding at their home in 2005. He performs constantly at private and corporate events around the US. David is endorsed by Taylor guitars.

David was invited by the “World Peace One” foundation to participate and represent South Africa in singing on the title track “Give your love”, a 2007 version of “Heal our World” recorded and filmed in the same studios as the original in 1985 in an attempt to bring awareness to world hunger and peace. Reminiscent of 1985's "We Are The World," "Give Your Love" will invite people everywhere to participate in a growing
call to action that sustains a lasting global movement to help humanity achieve Peace in our lifetime.

Along with being musical director for the reality TV show 'Steel Therapy', David is teaming up with the charity organization 'Hopes and Dreams International' and Ty Ritter’s Project ‘Child Save’, raising money and bringing awareness to the world of sex trafficking, kidnapping and the exploitation of children. Also currently in pre production for a television series.

David opened up for Lionel Richie on his Africa tour in November 2008. David latest single ‘Someday’ topped the SA charts for 3 weeks at No.1. in August 2008, and ‘Could’ve Been reached the No.2 position. His most recent single ‘Just You’ recently went to No.1 on the SA Top 40 charts. David is currently signed and writing for Murrah/Coulton Publishing in Nashville. David opened up for Crosby, Stills and Nash in New York in May 2010. He is also preparing for his next international tour in November 2011.

His latest record “Halfway to Memphis” was co-produced by Steve Freeman and is scheduled for release in the US in the fall of 2011.
