Remakes & Reboots: Upcoming Movies You've Seen Before

robocop remake

Release Date: 2013

Director: José Padilha (Elite Squad)Cast: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman

Category: Reboot of the Robocop movie franchise.

Our take: Robocop is yet another case where remake/reboot hatred amongst fans has reached seething levels. The reboot's director, José Padilha, has gained a strong following both abroad and in the US thanks to Elite Squad, which holds the record as Brazil's highest-grossing movie release.

Padilha has already discussed some modern ideas and themes for the new Robocop, so this film will at least attempt to cover some new ground - but the real test will be who they cast in the leading role of Alex Murphy/Robocop. UPDATE: The Killing star Joel Kinnaman is an interesting choice for the lead role, but it will be Gary Oldman's supporting role that we suspect will earn respect for this reboot.
