    I was watching Hollywood Dalies on Reelz this morning and they said in September shooting starts for the Robocop remake. I didn't know they were remaking it. They quickly glanced over the cast and I don't recognize the person who is set to play Robocop himself (my son was screaming at his game so I didn't hear it either)
    The only name I did recognize is Samuel L. Jackson who apparently plays the villan in the movie.
    The movie starts filming in September and is slated for a summer 2013 release. Looks like they want it to compete with the summer blockbusters.

    I've been on the fence about this one. While I love the original Robocop, I do get that it's very dated, and hasn't really aged all that well.

    I bet it's 1/10 as gory as the original.

    I just hope they don't change the look of Robocop too much. Definitely don't add a bunch extra, un-needed crap like shoulder rocket launchers and lame things like that.

    This film does not need remaking at all.

    This, robocop holds up in my eyes because of the environment the story revolves in. If I see a CGI heavy robocop movie it would bomb. My 2 cents but there's very few directors right now who could pull this off and do it right.

    Agreed. The original Robocop is one of my all time favorite films. I'd hate to see it become a CGI slugfest and get ridiculed.

    The only thing I hated about Robocop was, that he walked so slowly.

    "I have had it with these motherf**king criminals in this motherf**king dystopia!"

    Oh wait, he's the villain? Drat. My example makes little sense now.

    This definitely didn't need a remake.

    Is that a joke?

    Yeah, he has done great movies. But he's done some utter crap films as well.

    The original rating was X. It was so graphic that it couldn't get an R. I can't remember how they worked it down without looking up the story at the moment.

    Here it is (from Wikipedia):
