    RoboCop Remake on its way

    RoboCop Remake Now Also Stars Samuel Jackson

    In addition to Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman, the RoboCop remake is now going to star Samuel L. Jackson. This guy is destined to make his mark on every franchise out there, it seems.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson will play a powerful television mogul named Pat Novak. Apparently, he's a heavy-hitter in the world of RoboCop. Kinnaman, as you know, is Alex Murphy/RoboCop and Oldman is his creator.

    Jose Padilha is directing.

    Shooting begins this fall; RoboCop is due in theaters August 9, 2013

    Even at that, I just don't see this being anything like the original series. No doubt they'll change the base look of Robocop, too, even though his appearance is pretty iconic.

    IMO Samuel L. Jackson used to be cool...

    Now...lol...not so much.

    Why do they have to ruin all good things in the 80's...

    UGH! Just make a game, and dont remake the film. The original robocop game is still hillarious, you basically go around punching dogs. lol

    Oh, this is cool. I just finished watching RoboCop: Prime Directives (the 4 movie mini-series) and I picked up the RoboCop TV series. I enjoy RoboCop. I hope (at the bare minimum), this movie gets all 3 RoboCop movies released on Blu-Ray with all the DVD special features ported over. I'm not going to buy them again with no special features.

    For money, plain and simple. I'm of the firm belief that every single movie that has ever been made will be remade, if it hasn't already.

    I am not only Huge Fan for He-Man. I like lots of Terminator & RoboCop. There is really good website for RoboCop: RoboCop Archive - www.robocoparchive.com

    And this RoboCop "remake" is not really gonna be remake since it focus making RoboCop.

    Also Hugh Laurie's character in film. Seems liked he may be mix of "The Old Man" and "Richard Jones" characters in original film.

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Ditto what others have said. Sure, it's not the original, but I absolutely LOVED this movie. Really fun, and really pretty well done overall I though. Liked how he seems to have gone back to the classic look. I would put this up with Dredd as a great reboot of a "meh" franchise (say what you will, Robocop went downhill after the first movie).

    Definitely grabbing this one when it comes out on blu-ray.

    I think I'll watch a movie that is, you know, more original.

    I just got back from seeing it and my initial thought is that it was pretty good.

    Well, after seeing it, I'm completely disappointed and in many ways I have to agree with Movie Bob here. Guess what, there's spoilers in the video LOL
