Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Laurie, Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel, Michael Kenneth Williams and Abbie Cornish will be in the upcoming Robocop remake, but will it be good, classic, epic or will it bad, horrible, just a straight fail??
|Fan's attempt at the New Design|
Latino-Review points out a roasting series of tweets from HitFix's Drew McWeeny who read the script for the reboot, which starts filming this fall for a 2013 release. Here are a few particularly caustic revelations about the script so be advised of SPOILERS:
"In the film, when Murphy is turned into Robocop 1.0, it’s described 'a high-tech version of the ’80s suit.' Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. 'He looks like a toy from the ’80s!' So they redesign him to look 'meaner' as Robocop 2.0, who passes focus group approval. So they not only make sure to include the original design, they also point out it’s dated and stupid. *facepalm*"
"Oh, god… oh dear god… Robocop is a Transformer. He goes from 'social mode' to 'combat mode' and back. Full transformation." Well the switch from social mode to combat mode could be equaled to the mouth guard that comes up on Optimus when he has to fight.
All in all this just nitpicking at certain aspects of the film, who is to say that this will be bad or good, who don’t know at the end of the day its all about execution and a good story.
The suit will be redesigned numerous times in the film, but for now that’s all we know be sure to stay intouch for updates.
