Andrés “Andy” Muschietti, the famous Argentinian filmmaker who is the director of Stephen King’s It, currently is getting ready to make the Hollywood editions of two worldwide famous anime franchises which are the Attack on Titan and Macross/Robotech.

There aren’t any significant updates to the status of Hollywood’s live-action turn on the adventure, the chief as of late addressed both Attack on Titan and his arranged Macross/Robotech adjustment while doing press for It Chapter Two in Japan.

Andy Muschietti said about Attack on Titan:

“I’m fascinated by Attack on Titan. It’s a story that I first saw the anime and then the manga… I find it fascinating. There’s a lot of themes there that attract me a lot, that I want to talk about. It’s also a fascinating horror adventure. There’s also all the elements of human drama. So I really want to do it.”

After talking about Attack on Titan, the famous director moved to Macross, stating that while he’s not a hardcore anime consumer, seeing Macross had a big impact on him.

“Robotech was, growing up, incredibly impactful to me. We only had four channels growing up… so all the kids of my generation watched the same things. And Robotech —Macross turned Robotech, because it was filtered through Harmony Gold, and then it came to the world packaged like Robotech — was so revolutionary and so groundbreaking. It just completely, like, shattered my mind. It’s a story that’s still in my heart. And, you know, [it’s a film] that we’re developing also.”

You can take a look at the full interview below:

Attack on Titan is a Japanese manga arrangement both composed and shown by Hajime Isayama. The arrangement initially started in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine on September 9, 2009, and it has been gathered into 28 tankōbon volumes as of April 2019. It is set in reality as we know it where mankind lives in urban communities encompassed by tremendous dividers that shield the people from colossal man-eating humanoids alluded to as titans.

Attack on Titan has turned into a basic and business achievement. As of April 2019, the manga has 90 million tankōbon duplicates in print around the world (80 million in Japan and 10 million outside of Japan), making it a standout amongst the smash hit manga series. The anime adjustment has been generally welcomed by pundits with the initial three seasons being met with basic approval with a commendation for its story, movement, music, and voice acting. The anime has demonstrated to be incredibly fruitful in both the U.S. what’s more, Japan, in this way boosting the arrangement’s ubiquity.
