I might be one of the few people left who is excited for director Jose Padilha's reboot of RoboCop. I love everything I've seen from the set photos in regards to the suit, and I like the direction that they plan on taking the film. I think it's going to be one of those movies that turns out a lot better than what people are expecting. One of the film's stars, Abbie Cornish, recently did an interview with VH1 and praised the film saying...
It's gonna be a massively kick-ass film. I actually have a voicemail message from Jose Padilha, the director. He says in the message, 'I don't think we've got a great movie. I think we've got a classic.'
I hope she's right, because that would be awesome. The movie comes out on February 7th, 2014, and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
