Last week a website called Cinema Com Rapadura posted a story about director Jose Padilha being in RoboCop Remake Hell. Immediately following that, a shitstorm started brewing around the Internet. Today Padilha has addressed those remarks and rumors.

Our friends at Latino Review did some translating of a recent interview Padilha did with Cinema em Cena in which he states…

“I have a script I’m happy with, and I got the cast I have picked. The director of photography is Lula Carvalho, my editor is Daniel Rezende (City of God, Elite Squad, The Tree of Life). I was even consulted for the selection of the producers.”

When asked about the rumors of him having a bad time while in pre-production for RoboCop:

We deal with those difficulties with coolness and familiarity.”

Smart answer.

Jose Padilha’s film is gearing up for a September start in Toronto and thus far stars Joel Kinnaman as the title hero plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Currently RoboCop has a tentative release date of August 9th, 2013.

In RoboCop the year is 2029, and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe, and now they want to bring this technology to the home front.

Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father, and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes its remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life.

He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

    Why does it have to be an origin story? Everyone knows RoboCop’s origin and even if they didn’t it’s easily explained in 5 minutes.

    I really wonder how they’re going to make Toronto look like old Detroit……
