    Joel Kinnaman ROBOCOP Reboot Interview

    "Do you know if you are going to go for an R rating or a PG-13?

    Kinnaman: I sincerely hope they’re going for R ‘cause I can’t imagine how RoboCop could be PG-13. That would be a huge mistake. If I have any say in it, I will fight very hard for it. It has to be violent."

    That's nice to hear but ultimately doesn't mean **** all if the studio execs want this movie to appeal to little billy and Sally. Let's be honest, a robot cop? I'm sure they're already planning when the toys will be on TRU's shelves.

    I hope they do it and do it well-Robocop was the biggest disappointment of the 80's film series in that one was great and then the ass end fell off and it went in toilet for the next few films.....only Ghostbusters did as bad with a really bad second film.

    You could improve Robocop's movements and still be like the original,still have that limited swing but faster.

    I just hope they go for three films and instead of the bomb fest the last one was have two dealing with Murphy adjusting to being a cyborg,and maybe have some infighting about whether he's still human or property.

    Dunno what they'd set up for opponents/bad guys,you can only go so far with street gangs....

    yeah they are also going to make him more human, with emotions etc ...
    it probably will come down to a tony stark like thing, if they continue this, because"this has worked out in other movies, lets do this!"

    Ehh, I do love Robocop, but a robot cop is only so appealing.

    But a KARATE cop? Now we're talking. Not only does he know karate, he's the only cop still alive in an entire city full of evil dickheads. This movie deserves a remake.

    They should bring in Frank Miller to write it as series reboot in the form of a sequel where the original Robo's out of commission or something and they need to make a new one. It isn't really a reboot and it isn't really a sequel but something in between. No clue how they'd do it without sucking but can't be any worse than what they have planned now.

    Read the thing about the eyes and right then realized how badly they're going to miss on this thing. The...whole.....POINT of Robocop (besides the social critisim and satire of a media-frantic, corporate world) is Murphy's arc from likeable family man and good cop, to machine, and then finding his humanity again. Making the 'robo' part more human and relatable says they have no idea what this story is about. I also particularly liked the comment about how the original was cool, but THIS one is going to be a real actors' piece. Go **** yourself, Peter Weller, apparently.

    Zetumer is a talented writer and Jose Padhila is a tremendously talented director. We'll all be fine.

    Reboots will flood the market and out of the ashes something new and fresh will arise.

    Folks here have already covered many good points on why RoboCop should not be remade; I'd like to add one of my own-

    I personally do not think there is an actor currently active in the business today who could pull off the deeply-detailed performance that Peter Weller gave as Murphy in the first movie. Not only would they have to act the part of a human being who is tormented and brain-wiped at the same time, but would also have to convincingly portray the movements and mannerisms of machine-driven parts and the precise, rigid, mechanical movements characteristic of them. This is physical and demanding; it took Peter Weller some time to get the movements down if memory serves.

    Additionally, the original chemistry between several of the characters (both friendships and rivalries) would be almost impossible to replicate, such as the relationship between Murphy and Lewis while Murphy is rediscovering his humanity (I thought the scenes with him and Lewis as he had his helmet off in the factory were poignant and touching), the seething, subdued hatred between Robert Morton and Dick Jones, and the antagonistic clash between Clarence Boddicker and Murphy, both pre and post RoboCop transformation.

    Any new film is most likely not going to have any of this, or skew them so badly that it will destroy the point of the story. In the original film, we feel for poor Murphy because of what he lost, and through no fault of his own. Yet, he is a hero: despite all of that, he continues to do his duty even when the police force is after him and he is badly damaged by them. He continues on even when his partner, Lewis, is injured and he himself is critically damaged by Boddicker with a well-placed shot from a makeshift spear. And despite an ED-209 guarding the door and Dick Jones taking the Old Man as hostage, Murphy still presses on to do his job to the end.

    In the end, we cheer Murphy for being human, yet being made of a far stronger "mettle" than the alloy his body is now made of. My concern is the "reboot" will not have any of this and simply focus on making RoboCop a springy, fleet-footed, cyber-ninja with a badge. But, i guess we'll have to see...

    You're close, but I think the blockbuster would be:

    RoboCop vs. Iron Man vs. Terminator vs. Predator vs. Alien vs. Batman vs. Superman vs. Super Shark vs. Sharktopus vs. Oversexed Rugsuckers from Mars.
    Still not there, I think this guy already made the blockbuster that needed to be made:

    I really don't understand why Hollywood has to reboot every franchise. I know there is the argument of re-introducing it to a newer generation but why not focus their efforts on new ideas?
