Robocop sequel, anyone?

Recommended Posts

I’m up for it, a Robocop sequel could be fantastic. I never saw the (I’m assuming) crappy modern remake so I am completely  uncynical.

It had some interesting ideas and earns marks for taking the idea in a different direction, but yeah generally it was crappy. 

 

This idea is really stupid though.

I remember there was a pretty good comic book following up on the movie in the 1990s, dealing with the fact that Murphy was self-aware again but still wasn't really a person. That's the sort of interesting character-driven use of the premise that absolutely no studio-mandated sequel is going to use.

Crazy post 9-11 Frank Miller to write, modern Paul Verhoeven to direct, modern old and creepy Peter Weller to star. Fucking book it.

Yeah, okay I'd be game. They could even CGI it up and still have Weller. It would work. 

Who cares if it works or not?

And based on Miller's own ridiculously over the top Robocop vs Terminator comic!

Alternatively, Harlan Ellison to write, Werner Herzog to direct and you can stick anyone in the suit, it will automatically be the best Robocop flick ever made. Peewee Herman, the guy out of Mrs Brown’s Boys, whoever.

One of the bears from Grizzly Man as Murphy. All the ultra-violent action is described by Herzog but not actually seen

:hat: Wish I could say I'd deliberately set that up.

You see an opening, you go for it.
