FREEZE! ‘Robocop’ Remake Puts Hands in the Air

Back in November of ’05 (a year already?!) CHUD broke the news that Sony Pictures was working on a remake of Robocop with Hollywood legend Michael DeLuca (New Line’s former president of production). No details were revealed other than the unofficial (and confirmed) announcement. While dozens (maybe hundreds) of remakes are seeing green, we’ve been informed that the Robocop remake has been told to “freeze.” “The studio no longer has interest in the remake,” our anonymous scooper informs us. We also discovered that everyone involved in the original film (including Jon Davison and Ed neumeier) were talking to the studio about being involved in the remake. In the original 1987 film a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg with submerged memories haunting him.
