RoboCop Getting a 30th Anniversary Documentary Titled RoboDoc


It’s amazing to think that the original RoboCop will turn 30 next year. Yup, it was released all the way back in the long forgotten days of 1987. Long before I was born anyway.

And what better way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of such an extraordinary film than with a documentary, eh? That’s right; one’s being prepped for next year from producer Gary Smart, whom we previously interviewed about his Fright Night documentary, and director Christopher Griffiths. It’s called… um, wait for it… it’s called RoboDoc. Yeah. I really can’t decide if that title is a stroke of genius or a childish play on words.

Anyway, the documentary will explore the originals of Paul Verhoeven’s masterpiece, complete with cast and crew interviews. Check out its Facebook page for more details.

It’s worth noting that RoboCop was also briefly given an X rating from the MPAA, the equivalent of an NC-17 at the time, essentially making it one of the first NC-17 rated superhero films. Now that’s an achievement to boast about! I suggest that you go and watch the film again. You have twenty seconds to comply.

RoboDoc is a brand new feature-length documentary from the makers of Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II and You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fight Night.

Supported by dozens of the RoboCop cast and crew, this documentary sets out to give the definitive view on the film’s 30-year legacy as well as the impact it has had on fans and the genre itself.
