Jose Padilha talks ROBOCOP redesign
Director Jose Padilha recently addressed some casting rumors for the upcoming RoboCop reboot. Now the Elite Squad director has spoken to Crave Online to discuss the redesign of the RoboCop character and that ED-209.
Here is what he had to say:
"That I can’t tell otherwise I’m going to give the movie away. We are already doing that, working on the designs so I do already know stuff. Listen, the design has to match the script. You don’t design something out of the blue. You design something that makes sense inside the dramatic universe that you are exploring. So that’s what we’re doing."
The reboot will have it's share of changes, but the characters namems will not be touched, Padilha said:
"Alex Murphy is Alex Murphy, man. You can’t call Batman some other name. Bruce Wayne is Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent is Clark Kent, Alex Murphy is Alex Murphy."
What do you think about this news? Are you looking forward to seeing Padilha's take on the film.
