Is “Robocop” back on duty?

MGM has a new “Robocop” movie in the works?


AintItCoolNews pointed out a press release from MGM that lists a new “RoboCop” movie alongside upcoming franchise films already in development like “Quantum of Solace,” “The Thomas Crown Affair 2″ (with “RoboCop” director Paul Verhoeven on board) and for some reason, “The Pink Panther 2″ and 3.

Unfortunately, it looks like MGM would rather reboot the “Robocop” franchise rather than give us an easily forgettable sequel. Great – I’m sure this new remake will totally miss the point with the shocking violence, sick humor and sharp satire of the original.

While we’re at it, maybe we can put some bling and spinning rims on Robocop as he chases generic hoodlums all around Detroit.

The thing is, the original couldn’t get any darker or more relevant – it still holds up and is an amazing piece of societal satire. Why would someone want to ruin that and tarnish the name of “Robocop” for good?

What do you think? Any ideas for directors or writers? Sound off on our forums!
