They should do original stuff instead of remaking everything.
...in fairness though, this might just be *early* concept art. To add a little perspective, this is what an early design of the original Robocop looked like...it too looks a tad familiar, no? )
Oh but the original RoboCop was designed with Dredd in mind!
The original Robocop started off because Charlie Lippincott wanted to make a Judge Dredd movie...
Didn't think the link survived long enough for that helmet design though - that *is* Dredd's helmet....
If I had a $1 for every time I saw this posted on the internet I have a tidy little sum.
I'd buy that for a dollar!
So my $1 in-joke for the thread was understood!
I believe that was deemed fake a few weeks ago.
Apparently Drew McWeeny has read the script. BIG grains of salt!
If true, this movie will play up the "He's a product" angle more than the 1987 movie.
Robocop is no different than the latest Ipod
Having a "Criminals focus group" is probably some attempt by the movie to copy the 80's satire angle.
I understand that with the OCP employee looking at Robocop action figures.
Well these designs are definitely full of Dredd.
Hugh Laurie is now out
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.
Laurie out (*shame*), Clive Owen in (*meh*)
^He's not actually in yet - just on their wishlist.
The Robocop Remake Is Causing “Hell” For Its Director
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.
