Whether or not they’re able to pull off a remake of Paul Verhoeven’s violent 80s action classic ROBOCOP is still way up in the air (hell, I’d say it’s floating in bloody space), but I’m open to the idea of Murphy back on the streets of Detroit. The project has had more than its fair share of problems before and during shooting began, with a new look design that initially looked all wrong, is now growing on many. However, they should have stuck with Bob Morton’s instructions to ‘lose the arm’.
Jose Padilha’s film will see an almost new take on the original film with a script seeing the ‘Part man. Part machine. All cop’ given a number of metallic upgrades over the course of the film – and we have the first look at one of those more robotic designs. We’ve also added whats expected to be the first stage design to compare as well as a number of concept images for weapons, ED-209 and more. Take a look…
ROBOCOP will eventually arrive in cinemas 7th February 2014 and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earl Haley and Samuel L. Jackson.
