“Anarchy reigns and the fate of Detroit hangs in the balance as RoboCop makes his triumphant return to fight crime and corruption”. Ναι, επιστρέφει. Και με, ίσως τον καλύτερο για τη δουλειά. Τον Blomkamp. Ναι, του District 9. Ναι, ο Neill Blomkamp ετοιμάζεται να φτιάξει κάτι που ΙΙΙΙΣΩΣ να πλησιάσει την πρώτη cult ταινία RoboCop του 1987. Και ναι, ο τίτλος είναι RoboCop Returns. Ωωω, ναι…

Αν και το αρχικό του Paul Verhoeven δεν πιάνεται, η αλήθεια είναι το remake του 2014 με τον Joel Kinnaman το έχουμε ξεχάσει ήδη. Άρα; Οι ελπίδες στο σκηνοθέτη.

Το δε Deadline έχει πολλές λεπτομέρειες:

“The original definitely had a massive effect on me as a kid. I loved it then and it remains a classic in the end of 20th Century sci-fi catalog, with real meaning under the surface. Hopefully, that is something we can get closer to in making of a sequel. That is my goal here. What I connected to as a kid has evolved over time. At first, the consumerism, materialism and Reaganomics, that ’80s theme of America on steroids, came through most strongly. But As I’ve gotten older, the part that really resonated with me is identity, and the search for identity. As long as the human component is there, a good story can work in any time period, it’s not locked into a specific place in history. What’s so cool about RoboCop is that like good Westerns, sci-fi films and dramas, the human connection is really important to a story well told. What draws me now is someone searching for their lost identity, taken away at the hands of people who are benefiting from it, and seeing his memory jogged by events. That is most captivating. The other thing I am excited by is the chance to work again with Justin Rhodes. He has added elements that are pretty awesome, to a sequel that was set in the world of Verhoeven. This is a movie I would love to watch.”
