Gran Torino writer Nick Schenk will re-write ‘Robocop for MGM
— Posted by The Amazing Anthony
Another reboot/remake in the works is that of the beloved Robocop franchise. TMB first learned of the plan to bring this franchise back to cinemas a looooong time ago, dating as far back as March of 2008. We even even discovered a teaser poster being released in June of that year.
. The film only began to pick up steam last year when director Jose Padilha was tapped to direct the film and he began creating a ‘wish list’ of who could fill the gargantuan robotic shoes. They still haven’t decided. Aside from that we’re learning that the film is undergoing a re-write courtesy of Nick ‘Gran Torino’ Schenk.
I’m excited about the movie getting a re-write and moving further along into production but I really want to focus on which actor is going to portray the robotic cop. It’s pretty damn important seeing as how whoever they choose has to convincingly act while wearing a helmet. That’s not easy. Fassbender is all over the place but I’m sure he could pull off the role well if given the opportunity. I haven’t made my mind up about Chris Pine but I refuse to attach any of these guys to this film until someone signs a binding contract. Are you guys excited for the return of the Robo?
