I don’t want to be an obnoxious fanboy about this, for all I know it could turn out brilliantly, so I suppose I’ll refrain from judging the impact of this decision until I see the film. But there’s some interesting news concerning Jose Padilha’s remake of RoboCop today. Namely that RoboCop himself will be “more human” and have a visible set of eyes.
Actor Joel Kinnaman told MTV, “‘RoboCop’ is going to be a lot more human. The first movie is one of my favorite movies. I love it. Of course, Verhoeven has that very special tone, and it’s not going to have that tone. It’s a re-imagination of it. There’s a lot of stuff from the original. There are some details and throwbacks, but this version is a much better acting piece… it’s not going to be jaw action. They’re still working on the suit and how it’s going to look, but the visor is going to be see-through. You’re going to see his eyes.”
Considering how the plan behind the program in the original RoboCop hinged on the subject not knowing his identity, I’m trying to decide if this throws the concept too far out of whack or not.

The Jose Padilha directed remake of RoboCop is fast becoming a reality! The original film about about a cop who was near death and was drafted to become a powerful cyborg cop is so iconic – and so good that part of me just didn’t process that this was happening. Part of me feels that there’s almost no way they can get this right and they should just leave Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original alone. I don’t often say that – I usually have a pretty open mind about remakes – but I’m concerned.

MGM is in talks to acquire Killer Pizza, an Adam Green (Hatchet, Hatchet II, Frozen) spec script adaptation of the Greg Taylor book about a 14-year old boy who lands a summer job at a pizza joint that is actually a front for a monster hunting enterprise. Sounds like Lover Boy with monsters! Green talked to Bloody about the film last August.
Talks are underway for Rafaella De Laurentiis to produce with 1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment. 1492 Entertainment’s Chris Columbus brought it to MGM after meeting with the brass there and sensing the studio’s appetite for Gremlins and Goonies-type fare, and Killer Pizza fit that bill. READ MORE
