'RoboCop' 2014: Differences Between the Remake and the Original

RoboCop 1987 ED 209 Dick Jones

1987: After OmniCorp heir apparent Senior Vice President Dick Jones' (Ronny Cox ) new law enforcement machine ED-209 executes an unarmed board member, raising significant safety concerns, Jones hires master criminal Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith), also the man responsible for Murphy's death, to destroy the company's competing law enforcement product, RoboCop, as well as kill anyone who does not support the ED-209 program.

2014: In the reboot, OmniCorp has successfully implemented ED-209, EM-208, and XT-908 robot law enforcers in every other country around the world. To make robot police officers more palatable in United States, profit-hungry OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) commissions the creation of a man in a machine - recruiting cocky security tactician Rick Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley) for damage control should RoboCop, one day, turn against his creators.
