When you think RoboCop you usually think of four things : Metal, Miguel, Verhoeven, and Neumeier. And whilst one of those elements will undoubtedly return for the recently announced Darren Aronofsky-led remake, it’s safe to say original director Paul Verhoeven and writer Ed Neumeier won’t be.

Moviehole had the chance to talk to Neumeier, who also co-produced the original movie and served as a consultant on the TV spin-off series, about how he’s coping letting go of his beloved metal boy.

The screenwriter says he and Paul Verhoeven aren’t involved with MGM’s remake of the 1987 classic, though “producer Jon Davison was nominally consulted by the new producers”.

Neumeier, also the penner of another sci-fi classic, “Starship Troopers”, is hopeful the film’s helmer can come up with a decent-enough reboot and not screw up the franchise.

‘’Obviously, I hope they do a good job and don’t make a mess of it like they managed to with RoboCop 2 and 3. Darren Aronofsky, the director of record last time I checked, is a talented guy and I presume he’ll do something interesting”, he said, adding “The biggest problem the new movie may face is MGM’s shaky financial health”.

The David Self-penned “RoboCop”, produced by Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, Brad Fischer and David Thwaites, was originally earmarked for a 2010 release. With no sign of a start date in the near future though, seems its been pushed back a tad.

Meantime, Neumeier has rejoined forces with Paul Verhoeven for a new film. “Verhoeven and I are hard at work on our epic about Los Angeles, the LAPD, marriage, divorce and bank robbery called Black & White and Red All Over.”
