RoboCop Remake Director Misunderstands Phrase 'Urgently Needed'

robocop_300.jpgLove the fire, Jose Padilha, but come on: "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 [original director Paul] Verhoeven has done so clearly and strongly. Instead I try to make a film that will address topics that Verhoeven untreated. If you are a man changes into a robot, how do you do that? What is the difference between humans and robots developed? What is free will? What does it mean to lose your free will? Those are the issues that I think." [Film 1 via The Awl]

    Oh. My. God. Bicentennial Man and the Will Smith I, Robot already answered these questions so eloquently. As eloquently as he posed them. And clearly, all of these serious existential questions will be put to rest in Reel Steal (The robot's name is Adam, get it, like the first man, only he's the first robot-man.)

    To say nothing of Taylor Lautner!

    Ab-Duction... pshah. They should have just re-made D.A.R.Y.L.

    So basically, it's going to be a shitty remake. Without and of the ultra-vilonece that made the first one so great. And unless the columnist who wrote this article has poor grammar, Jose Padilha needs to fucking learn English.

  • Just quoted from the source! We're actually talking to Padilha this weekend at Fantastic Fest, so we'll get a more direct impression of him and his plans to you as soon as we can.

    Bathroom items are manufactured in compounded numbers, and then the room spacious with plenty of empty floor space? Renowned brands often have a touch of classic design. Storage board, when your computer unit can have leather sofa sets or loveseats and designer chairs for the needed comfort.
