Alfred Gough, Miles Millar to pen adaptation

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have signed on to write the script for Robotech, the forthcoming adaptation of an 80s anime that might well become a vehicle for Tobey Maguire.

 

Maguire has so far boarded only as a producer, along with Chuck Roven, Drew Crevello and Akiva Goldsman.

 

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.
