Sylvain White to direct Robotech movie?


Nothing's official yet, but we can speculate all we want. There's been some talk for, oh, at least a few years now on the possibility of a Hollywood movie version of Robotech.

So I was checking out iF Magazine (shameless plug -- I write about anime and manga there). And I saw an article on Robotech (not something I wrote). iF Magazine doesn't cover a lot of anime, so I knew it had to be something big.

According to the article, director Sylvain White has expressed interest in directing the Robotech movie, if in fact the movie's made. He said he watched the show as a kid in France, and that he'd liked the draft he'd read of the script.

To be honest, I haven't seen the movies White has worked on, so I don't have any opinion on how he might be as a director for this. Has anyone in the Japanator audience watched his stuff? Do you think he has what it takes for this? If there is going to be a Robotech movie, what would you like to see in it?
