I am going to say this and hope that you folks know me better than this sounds, but I would not be surprised if they get 50 Cent or some other rapper and retro-fit this to be some sort of rags-to-riches tale of an African American. How mercenary is that? And stereotypical. And insulting. Oh and by the way, it'll be a story of the 'black' experience as told by a bunch of well paid white guys. This is SUCH a microcosm of what is wrong with Hollywood.
    You gotta admit, though... from a purely business/marketing standpoint it's an idea whose time has come.

    I'm surprised they didn't think of it sooner.

    Just because it makes sense doesn't make it right. I get it. I do. It's horribly mercenary and overall just pretty disgusting, but yeah, NOT making one is like leaving money on the table.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Josť Padhila Tells Me What His Robocop Film Is About Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    But we did also talk about Robocop, for a minute. A very intriguing minute…

    Padhila and I had been discussing the subject of police corruption and its portrayal in the Elite Squad films, when I asked how much of a presence these themes would have in Robocop.

    To hear Padhila tell it, the answer is “not much.” He reiterated comments that he’s already made elsewhere, that he considers the story to be about:


    a man being turned into a product by a corporation.

    Which the original certainly was… at the same time as at least touching on police corruption.

    Padhila seems to see the plight of Robocop as the way into an ethical discussion. He told me that the story’s set-up “creates a host of ethical issues. There are lots of questions that have not been answered.”

    But it’s not just abstract. Padhila went on to root his concept in something very real for me:


    Wars in the future are going to be fought with drones. We won’t send a plane with a pilot in, it will be drone. It’s getting that way now and ten years from now that’s how wars are going to be fought.

    But what if a drone goes wrong – who is to blame then? Do you blame the drone?

    And that problem asks if you can you consider a robot guilty of a crime. Or is it the corporation that made the robot that is guilty?

    There’s definitely a rich seam to be mined there.

    Perhaps the best clue to Padhila’s specific intent for the film’s story was locked in his final comment on the matter:


    How do you fight back against drones when you don’t have drones?
    I have more and more hope for this.

    NO!!!!!!!!!!

    FAST FIVE Producer Remaking STARSHIP TROOPERS; THOR Screenwriters Penning the Script

    Starship Troopers is the PERFECT movie. Cheesy, ridiculous and filled with over-the-top gore and retarded social commentary. This will be bland, filled with pretty faces/empty heads and have none of the goofy charm of the original, nevermind the great book that it's based on. No. No. No.

    Are they going to remake all three Starship Troopers including the straight to video?

    Dunno, the film, purposely, is different from the novel so there's that...
