I actually kind of like that redesign. From everyone's reaction my sense of taste must not be so hot.

Apparently MGM are looking at 'a small group of actors' to replace Laurie - the good news is it includes Clive Owen.

Owen's a good actor, but Laurie could have brought something completely different to the role. A shame he's not involved (which makes it even harder to get excited about a remake of RoboCop).

Welcome to the club! I actually think it's a nice modernization, looks pretty slick and if you want to see the old design... what about watching that movie... whatever they go for, nothing will happen to it.

9 out of 10 ideas get rejected? Either they really hired the wrong director who has nothing but horrible ideas, or he simply didn't understand that they wanted to hire a guy who just does what the studio tells him to do.

Like the goons that are hired to do Die Hard sequels. First it was Len Wiseman (who then went on to direct that classic that is known as Total Recall ) and now it's John Moore.

^MGM is making Robocop, whereas Fox is behind Die Hard (and Fox interference also had an effect on X-Men 3 and Wolverine), but yeah, sounds like much the same situation.

Yeah, they might be different companies, but the mindset is basically the same. But it depends on the situation, I guess. Paramount interfered heavily with Rick Berman's ideas about Star Trek, but it seems they let JJ Abrams do what he wants. I guess success makes you more independent from studio dictate.

That's not a bad alternative; certainly better than the thought of Clive Owen in the role.

Batman versus Robocop! It's great to see Keaton on the big screen in a big budget movie, he's been too rarely onscreen for a long time.

In the coincidence corner, the original Robocop, Peter Weller, voices Batman in the animated The Dark Knight Returns, while Gary Oldman, who is also in this Robocop, was of course Jim Gordon in the more recent Batman movies.
