Robocop Reboot Nabs a Writer

Robocop Wall

Last year we heard about MGM’s plans to reboot the Robocop franchise. While I wasn’t adverse to the idea, I truly hoped they would just craft a new sequel. It might not have worked out so well for Singer’s Superman Returns, but the original Robocop was quite good for its time, claymation aside. That said, I can’t fault director José Padilha for wanting to place his own stamp on the iconic series. Now it seems he’s found just the man to make that happen.

Nick Schenk has been brought aboard to write the remake. Schenk’s known for his work on Clint Eastwood’s critically-acclaimed drama, Gran Torino. The studio had original planned to start production in February, but with no cast locked in, and a brand new writer attached, filming won’t take place anytime soon. Let’s just hope they don’t screw it up.
