Robotech gets screenwriters from "Smallville"

robotechEver since creators and executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar left their jobs at “Smallville” without giving an official public statement on the reason why, I’ve wondered what they were going to do next. I mean, what do you do after you’ve already made a major name for yourself amongst the geek community by helping to revitalize one of its most iconic heroes?

You work on another story that involves iconic geek heroes, of course.

Hollywood Reporter turned in a story very early this morning about how Gough and Millar will be writing the script for Warner Bros. adaptation of “Robotech,” which itself is an adaptation and re-imagining of the original series “Macross.”

This means that they will probably not be using the script that Lawrence Kasdan (Dreamcatcher, Wyatt Earp, The Accidental Tourist) wrote, which makes me curious because I really like Kasdan’s work.

Hey, at least the production’s going somewhere… right?
