Producer Charles Roven (Afro Samurai, Get Smart, The Dark Knight) told the IESB.net website last week that he is no longer working on the proposed film adaptation of the Robotech animated series. Roven said that he wishes the remaining producers, Akiva Goldsman and Tobey Maguire, "fantastic luck" on the project.
Robotech was Harmony Gold's edited and rewritten adaptation of three separate anime science-fiction series: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada. The producers have yet to announce which, if any, of the three anime that the Warner Brothers project will most follow, or how it will deal with the copyright dispute between Harmony Gold's partner Tatsunoko Production and the creators of Macross (the most popular of the three anime).
