Robocop remake script leak?

Read it if you dare. This is turning out to be Robocop in name only.

^The in-jokes sound awful. I don't mind a few nods to an original but this just sounds stupid.

After the great casting the reading up on this it is sounding very, very bad.
Hopes...diminished.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I will order Robocop 2 on Amazon and rewatch the dvd when it arrives. Haven't seen it in decades.

I keep hearing that this was the only decent sequel in the franchise. Maybe the second movie will seem better if I stop comparing it to the first?

STILL can't believe the guy that directed ESB did this movie. Damn, Kershner... what happened?

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

^I thought Robocop was pretty crap, I must say. Proof again of the limits of Frank Miller's ability. But I hope you prove me wrong!

Kershner also directed the so-so 'unofficial' James Bond movie Never Say Never Again. At times, ESB does seem like the fluke on his CV.

I credit ESB as much to George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan as I do Kershner.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I have to admit, the idea of dropping Robocop and ED-209 into the middle of an al-Qaeda training camp sounds like a pretty cool one (who wouldn't love to see Robo completely waste those guys?).

But the rest? Ugh.

^But didn't they do something similar in Iron Man? They may not have specified the identity of the bad guys, but it was much the same idea.

Right, that and the redone armor looks as if Stark gave it once over tweaking the design doesn't help either imo.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I'm beginning to expect them to change the title of this movie to Iron Cop.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Upon reading this thread title I presumed that the star and director were the same person...

...and then some deep dark voice in my mind asked "Is it Shatner?"

Does anyone know where I can buy brain bleach?

This must be a hoax.

I mean it has to be.
