No joke, recently I was thinking something like this was gonna happen. A sequel that picks up straight after the first film, goes for the same tone and feel, and ignores everything that came after. I even guessed the title, RoboCop Returns, an everything. Do I win £5?

They will probably glue Weller's young uncanny valley mouth to another person in the suit. Ignoring the fact that it was Weller's physical movements that made it so good. No one has been able to match them

Cautiously optimistic, though. I don't think Bumcamp has done anything really good since District 9, and he's probably only doing this cos his very similar attempted retconning of Alien has seemingly been axed

We'll see, eh? RobertCop forever

Has Blomkamp just become a placeholder name? Like 'Alan Smithee' for films the director rejects, you now have 'Neill Blomkamp' for 80s sci-fi reboots with vague production schedules.

Weller's young uncanny valley mouth

He was notorious for it in his youth.

Justin Rhodes, who is also attached to write the upcoming “Terminator” reboot and the DC film “Green Lantern Corps,” will rewrite Neumeier and Miner’s script, with the two original writers serving as producer and executive producer.

Prediction:  Robocop Returns will be canned when the next Terminator film goes into a guff hole.

Not Blomkamp!  I don't think I can take any more Short Circuit 1 and 2 remakes.  Cos that's all he seems to do.

They've ALL gone up your guff hole...etc.

I've actually already seen Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD.  It was a while ago though, so I must have forgotten about the relevant section.

Oh and I have a soft spot for Richard Stanley's unofficial 2000AD film, Hardware.  It's a very cheesy but effective B-movie (and horribly but appropriately claustrophobic and sweat inducing)  I've still got my boxed VHS tape of it, from back when I was a teenager.

Hardware is based on an original story entitled "Shock!" by Steve MacManus and Kevin O'Neill that appeared in Fleetway Comics' "2000AD".

Er, not 'officially' based...

Legally they have to say it is, due to the film's distributors losing the copyright infringement case to Fleetway.

This is my understanding too.
