Maguire Climbing in Robotech Suit
Tobey Maguire's Maguire Entertainment and Warner Bros. have picked up the right to anime classic Robotech and hope to bring it to screens with Maguire in the lead. After three big-budget Spider-Man films in the bag, the young actor is ready to return to those smaller, intimate, giant robot mech suits in outer space roles that gave him his start.
The move was spurred on by the recent success of the $311 million-grossing giant robot flick Transformers, as well as the long-held understanding that giant robots are really awesome.
