I literally just got done rewatching my RoboCop Blu-ray last night, which was glorious, over-the-top and just badass on every single level that counts. Paul Verhoeven‘s ultra-violent classic holds up very strong, even against today’s standards, but that doesn’t really matter to MGM, because they’re rebooting it.
The José Padilha directed remake, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish and Joel Kinnanman (as RoboCop) is slotted for an August 9th release in 2013.
We now have our first look at the ED-209 robot, which looks almost exactly like the robot in the original film, only this time a little more bland.
Let the reboot discussion begin!
