James Wan, the director of the acclaimed Furious 7 movie is to now undertake Sony’s live-action Robotech project. It’s an exciting and challenging task alright.

Barely four weeks have passed since Furious 7 came out in theaters, yet James Wan, the director of the posthumous Paul Walker movie, is ready to start on Sony’s live-action Robotech series. 

Sony is currently pursuing the famous director and wants his talented skills for the project, according to EW. Already, the scriptwriters have been booked for the series. They include: Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton and Michael Gordon.

The undertaking is pictured on the same level as the 80s phenomenon. The basic narrative is about the use of robotics by a future society to fight space invaders. It was originally a ditto copy of a Japanese trio of series on television. Wan is the huge figure behind such big names in films as The Conjuring and the Insidious franchise. 

Robotech will be an animated film and the over-sized robots shown in it will resemble the high tech characters from the Transformers Series. James Wan is responding favorably to Sony’s feelers regarding the whole shebang.

The Robot-Warrior movie will be the next big thing and attract many a fan of thriller-cum-action movies. The actual story-line is about how humanity used the debris from an alien aircraft to construct massive and lethal robots that then are commissioned to battle with the aliens who send more space missions to earth.

Currently, James Wan is the hottest man in Hollywood. Especially after the success of Furious 7 at the box office, the man is definitely the most wanted human being in Tinsel Town. That alone is a lot for one individual to have accomplished at such an early age. He is the bee’s knees and his skills as a director are up for grabs among the cognoscenti of auteur cinema.
