Director José Padilha Talks Robocop Remake
The Robocop franchise is a strange one. The first is a classic, the second was kind of good, and the third just sent everyone's favorite metal marshal out with an absolute whimper. So how will the remake fare? Director José Padilha talks about his approach ...
"I love the sharpness and political tone of 'RoboCop', and I think that such a film is now urgently needed. But I will not repeat what [Paul] Verhoeven has done so clearly and strongly. Instead I try to make a film that will address topics that Verhoeven didn't touch upon. If you are a man who changes into a robot ... how do you do that? What is the difference between humans and robots? What is free will? What are the developmental differences between man and robot? What does it mean to lose your free will? Those are the issues that I think about."
Look for more on this one soon.
