That would be fun. Hope Weller gets a cameo too.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I just hope they don't make the costume TOO sleek and futuristic. More than anything, Robo needs to look big and intimidating and robotic, both to be a credible threat to the crime world and to distance himself as much as possible from his humanity.

I hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling what they come up with is just going to make him look like a guy wearing cool superhero armor or something.

They are going to try to make him into Iron Man?

I never thought I'd see the day when Gary Oldman plays what is apparently a good guy role, while Hugh Laurie takes villain duties!

Gary Oldman plays Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies. That is a good guy role.

Any word on whether they are going to keep the old Robocop theme for the remake?

All I know is if Robocop suddenly starts flying in this remake, I'll be walking out of the theater.

I still have horrible memories of Robocop 3!

Ugh, not sure what was worse. The flying, or him getting his arm chopped off by a robot ninja.

I remember being the only adult in the theater when I saw it (only once in my life!).
