I’m not sure if I honestly know anyone that is actually looking forward to the new RoboCop remake. Yes, the cast is stacked with Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, Jackie Earle Haley and Joel Kinnaman, but this is still a remake of the Paul Verhoeven classic that we’re talking about.
Verhoeven’s ability to blend social satire and outrageous amounts of violence is unheard of and I don’t think any modern filmmaker would even attempt to recreate what he did. Still, director Jose Padilha is going try his best and from what we’ve heard the project is slowly becoming a disaster.
There was talks last week about his frustration with everything on set and now this week we have the first official picture of the suit and it’s horrible.
It looks like something ripped from a video game and it looks nothing like what RoboCop should look like. I understand changing the looks from the last film, but does everything have to be soaked in dark blacks and gritty realism? You’re honestly going to tell me that this is the best suit that they could come up with?
