ED-209 to return in RoboCop remake!
The 2013 remake of RoboCop is already generating rather a lot of buzz. Now a new viral video from 'Omnicorp' signals a tip of the cap in the direction of Paul Verhoeven's original.
We enjoyed the use of The Weyland corporation as a viral tool in the run-up to Prometheus so we'll see where this viral sequence takes us. For now it's interesting to see some action inclination from a movie that appears to be taking a more thoughtful line than the 1987 bullet-fest.
Director José Padilha has talked about a more psychological approach to Verhoeven, stating that his RoboCop takes place during the creation of RoboCop himself with Gary Oldman playing key role as Robo's creator.
RoboCop (2013): What we know
The original Robocop was all about a dead cop resurrected as a cyborg and regaining his humanity. The remake is about a dead cop resurrected as a cyborg and losing his humanity.
I believe this shows the shocking decline in morals in the last 25 years.
Besides which this plotline was already done in AD Police, so no originality either.
