Jose Padilha's first Hollywood feature appears to be off to a rocky start. The director of the two internationally loved films Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within is in charge of the RoboCop remake over at Sony and as issues were recently brought up by the online geek set when Joshua Zetumer and Nick Schenk's script was leaked it sounded like just the normal complaining, but now it sounds as if Padilha may be second-guessing himself and the film hasn't even started shooting yet. We'll begin with the comments on the script that were made on Twitter via Drew McWeeny from HitFix.com. To give you a sense of where McWeeny approached the screenplay from, he says, "Robocop was already perfect." So he's against a remake from the start, not exactly a good place to be when commenting on the script, but at least he puts it out there for context. »
