Re: Female RoboCop-Casting & Plot

My initial reactions to the 1987 ''RoboCop'' and ''Dirty Dancing'' theatrical trailers were pretty much identical.

''Are they flipping serious? This is going to sink like a stone!''

Actually to be fair it was probably the TITLE of ''RoboCop'' which made me think that. Many of us were sucked in by false cheesiness. Sly marketing on Orion Pictures' part. Others were sucked in by ''Dirty Dancing'''s REAL cheesiness.

Fairuza Balk needs a job. Cast her as Clarice Boddicker.

With the new remake about to come out February 14, I've been wondering if a female version of the character would work for today instead of a male
Does that mean you're assuming the male version will work in the first place?
With the new movie, most hopefully yes.

Why a female Robocop has a lot of BAD potential:

I'm not expecting much. I'm guessing it will do what most remakes do and miss what made the original good in the first place. I'll be happy to be proven wrong. But, if I'm not, at least I'll get some entertainment in the form of scathing reviews

It's like the Borg. There were women in the suits in both "Q Who?" and BOBW, but they had a close-up on the faces it was hard to tell. And even then, it was pretty androgynous.

I'm fairly sure Ryan was the first one depicted as overtly feminine.
I think Alice Krige beat her to it as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact.
