    That would be a good choice, think he's a fantastic actor.

    Jose Padilha talks Robocop and plays down Michael Fassbender link


    The remake will include social commentary according to Padilha.

    he's trying to sound clever, perhaps without realising that he's describing the start of Robocop 2.. imagine if he actually did set his whole movie between Murphy being shot, and being turned into Robocop, that would be one boring movie :laugh:

    going by what he's saying, i'd have more faith in a 5 year old directing the film than him.

    This will probably be as bad as the TV show.

    I was mildly interested when Aronofsky was attached, now the only thing I'm looking forward to is the inevitable complimentary blu-ray release of the original - remastered and not looking like **** this time, please.

    I mean, how do you trump Verhoeven?!

    There are plenty of people queuing up to do just that. The redo of Total Recall should be surfacing at some point, Sony are talking up a reboot of Starship Troopers, and of course there's Robo.

    I too hope we get a spanking-new Blu-ray of Robo! No reason why they couldn't give Robo 2 some love, neither.

    For me Robo 2 was a crushing disappointment. Alongside Beneath the Planet of the Apes, it was the time I watched a sequel whose defects seemed to cheapen the original. Saying that, I'm a huge fan of Phil Tippett's ace animation sequences. And when part 3 appeared, Kershner's effort looked like a tour-de-force.

    Plus the second one doesn't feature this beauty: "I am now authorised... to be as loyal as a puppy!" :facepalm: In just 5 seconds, cinema's most ferocious botch of a killer robot became terminally lame. God, I hate that film!

    #2 is a lurid pulp comic book of a movie and not a patch on the socially-aware original, but I sure do likes it.

    Second one lacked Basil Poledouris' superb theme, which was another of its failings. Saying that I enjoyed seeing it in the cinema, having missed the first one on the big screen.

    Same here, the first one I love and even though at face value it's another 80s actioner I thought it was really touching and actually really sad - I did want to know more. The second one I doubt I've seen since a dodgy pirate copy I picked up in Malta on holiday in the early 90s:blush:

    Yes lets not talk about Robocop 3. Possibly one of the worst entries in a series ive ever seen. And ive seen all of the tremors movies! :D

    To be honest i dont remember Robocop 2 that much. I recall parts of it. I might have to get hold of it again for another viewing.

    Robocop was one of he best SiFi movies ever made, I can't see how this can be remade. It's dark 80's satire is completely incompatible with the modern hollywood money machine.

    Also, no one wants to make 18's. They even water down films with BBFC clasifications of 15 to get a 12a. However, films have become far more violent since then with 15's regularly having far more blood, guts and death. But that's not what made Robocop scary (and darkly humourous). Robocop is a very misunderstood film. It was a very smart film which most people don't get, it would be completely lost on today's generation.

    A complete re-imagining MIGHT be possible, like they did with Batman. But it would take a very good righter and a brave director/studio. I just can't see it, but that said the guy they cast for the lead role does bode better than a big cheesy star.

    I'm not ardently against remaking films - both The Thing (1982) and The Fly (1986) are firm favourites - but I hold little faith that this "re-boot" will offer anything more than a cynical buck for an uninspired studio, as is generally the case with these things. I'd like to be proven wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Just setting down with Mrs Shodan to watch Robocop (1). She started banging her gums about Wesley Snipes and him going to prison for tax evasion. I tried to ignore her, then switched to tell her about the Robocop remake. Then she asked me if Wesley Snipes was going to be Robocop again in the new one again....


    A quick trip to google images showed her why she shouldn't bother talking about films.... Lucky she's cute!
