Robocop Remake Script Details Leaked – Plot Details
By D33 on August 13, 2012
Every since the announcement of the Robocop Remake many have wondered where Brazilian Director Jose Padilha would take Alex Murphy’s (Robocop) Character. Well it would seem that some script details have been leaked and it would seem like robocop is Part Transformer part Captain america? Its understandable for the story to change to match up with modern political events but has Newbie screen writer Joshua Zetumer taken a wrong turn before filming even begins?
UPDATE: Check out these Production set photos! :
Now continues the Plot Details (Possibly Changed by studio)
Drew McWeeny of Hit Fix got his hands on the script, and blasted Twitter letting the universe know how he felt about the coming Robocop remake. Thanks to our friends over at Bleeding Cool putting all of McWeeny’s tweets into a more serviceable transcript, which you can read below:
Drew McWeeny’s Tweets:
I’ll share this one detail. In the film, when Murphy is turned into Robocop 1.0, it’s described “a high-tech version of the ’80s suit.”
Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. “He looks like a toy from the ’80s!”
So they redesign him to look “meaner” as Robocop 2.0, who passes focus group approval.
So they not only make sure to include the original design, they also point out it’s dated and stupid. *facepalm*
Hold onto your sides for more hilarious “Robocop” details. They outsource his construction to China. #seriously
And we meet the ED-209s in the field in Iran, where they’re used to subdue suicide bombers. #ineedallthedrinksnow
Ahhh… now they just dropped Robocop 3.0 onto an Al Queda training camp to see what he does.
“He should be programmed to incapacitate in all scenarios.” “Agreed. Let’s keep him PG-13, Dr. Norton.” No. No. No. No.
By page 54, they are already onto Robocop 4.0, who looks like a “cop on steroids painted metallic blue.”
Oh, god… oh dear god… Robocop is a Transformer. He goes from “social mode” to “combat mode” and back. Full transformation..
Okay… the two “best” lines in the script. First up is at the unveiling ceremony for Robocop in Detroit, from a TV reporter covering it.
“I think it’s safe to say that Alex Murphy is now part man, part machine, ALL COP!” Yes, I too remember the original poster, asshat.
If you can get past Robocop The Transformer, there are some interesting action beats. And I’m sure Padilla will direct the hell out of it.
But overall? Ouch. Ouch. Ohpleasedon’t. Ouch. And a big side order of ouch.
From what we can tell with Drew’s spoilers, we are not liking this concept so far. It seems Extremely PG-13 and also very re-Make ish. There is nothing I hate more then a Re-make of an 80′s Classic that is written as if its a Remake. Not saying to reference the old but at-least be innovative and unpredictable in the new concept. Well until we get a look at the final design and plot details we cant really judge but lets hope it does not suck as much as Drew’s tweets are revealing.
