The Robotech movie just gained one hell of a super boost. Deadline reports that Jason Fuchs, credited for co-writing the story for Warner Bros' recent Wonder Woman film with Zach Snyder and Allan Heinsberg, is on board to write the Sony feature film based on the cult 80s anime series.

Disney still holds sway on a global basis; over the last five years, Disney-distributed animation has grossed just over $5 billion to Universal’s $3.35 billion. However, as a producer Illumination’s box office is bigger than either Disney or Pixar, domestic and foreign, and with this latest round it could become more successful than both entities combined at the domestic box office. »
