According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have been drafted to pen 'Robotech,' Warner Bros.' adaptation of the anime classic.

Akiva Goldsman and Chuck Roven are producing with Tobey Maguire and Drew Crevello.

'Robotech' was a 1980s cartoon series from Harmony Gold USA and Tatsunoko Prods. It was re-edited and re-dialogued to combine three Japanese anime series to give the producers enough episodes to air as a daily syndicated series.

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."

According to MTV News, "Warner Bros snagged the rights in 2007, with Maguire attached as a producer and possibly to star in the lead role."

Both Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have written for the television show "Smallville."
