Robocop fans are going to be satisfied to hear that long-planned remake of 1987 movie is finally moving forward. Ok, maybe not with previously attached Darren Aronofsky, but still, guys from MGM have a decent replacement – Jose Padilha.
Brazilian director is probably best known from Elite Squad 2, a low-budget actioner that went on to make over $60m on home soil. So, he definitely looks like an interesting choice.
I’m sure you all remember MGM’s financial troubles, as well as Aronofsky’s interest in directing a remake. He actually planned to make movie that would’ve cost around $150m, but with all that studio problems, that was out of the question. Now, we learned that the budget of the new Robocop will be $80 million.
