Two long years after being announced, there are signs that Warner Bros.' live-action Robotech movie might actually be moving forward. The Hollywood Reporter says that Andy Muschietti, fresh off directing the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King's horror classic It, has been hired to helm Robotech.
Major Mira Killian doesn't remember who she was before. Now the character played by Scarlett Johansson is living inside a different kind of body about to start a different kind of life.
