RoboCop Reboot Snags Torino Writer

February 1, 2012

Gran Torino screenwriter Nick Schenk will work on the screenplay for the “RoboCop” reboot that aims to explore in detail a part of the story that Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 classic did not says Heat Vision.

José Padilha remains attached to direct the update that will further illustrate the actual transition from man to machine.

I have my take on it,” Padilha told Superhero Hype, “And I can tell you this: In the first RoboCop, Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts.”

How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?

Padilha and Schenk have also been working together on the action thriller “Tri-Border“.

Last March Joshua Zetumer was hired to write the reboot of the RoboCop franchise

Shooting hopes to kick off this Summer with casting to be announced in the few months
