Robocop Gets a Re-Make
It seems no past money-making movie is going to be left untouched in Hollywood’s re-make race, as Sony preps Robocop for a re-deux. says Michael De Luca (Zathura) is working on re-telling the story about a police officer who gets upgraded to law-enforcement machine, after being gunned down in the line-of-duty. The original 1987 film’s starred Peter Weller and its box-office success prompted two sequel films, a handful of television movies and an animated series. Some of the original film’s crew are even said to be taking part in the Robo-remake that will see the story re-set to the beginning, no doubt with hope for lucrative follow-up films.
