With MGM wanting to kick-off production on their RoboCop remake sometime this summer, THR is reporting that they've brought in writer Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) to provide the screenplay. Director Jose Padilha has already been charged with the helming duties and with that tentative production schedule in mind, you can expect casting news to heat up over the next few months.

While it's still too early to know the plot details, director Padilha did reveal to ComingSoon's Edward Douglas late last year what he had in mind for the storyline.

"I have my take on it.And I can tell you this: In the first 'RoboCop' when 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?"

Thoughts? Sound off below.

Who cares how robo is made, I just want to see him shoot people. Thats all filler like that crap in R. Zombies Halloween with young Myers in the hospital. Just Kill Somebody Already!!

And he was Red Forman from That 70's Show. "You a good cop? Hotshot!"

Yeah, not really interested in a remake.

Directive IV - Don't remake Robocop.

Miner49er 2/1/2012 12:48:12 PM

They have 10 seconds to comply... and kill this remake. Not needed.

 Oh my God, do they need to recover from the mess that was RoboCop 2 and 3!  Oh yeah, and the TV series?  What was that mess?!  Please God!  Give us a good revamp of this movie.  I loved the original, right down to RoboCop giving the metallic, spiked middle finger!  Bring it on!
