Tobey Maguire to produce and star in Robotech movie?

I swear I am not making this up. Apparently Warner Bros. picked up the feature rights to Robotech from Harmony Gold, and Tobey 'Spider-man' Maguire will serve as a producer and it looking at the lead role for himself. Apparently the success of Transformers has other studios scrambling to find a giant robot franchise - Regency recently picked up Voltron. Yes, Voltron. The lions I believe.

After my first "WTF?" reaction, I stopped and thought about it - and I think it could make a good movie. And he's of the right age to perhaps have been an original fan, so maybe he'll do it right. And he'd probably be OK as Rick Hunter. And it certainly can't be worse than the Robotech: The Untold Story - the first Robotech movie.
