I'm in favor of anything that gives me an excuse to post the only good picture in the history of photography.

Weller or bust.

But I will say, Blomkamp seems more appropriate for this than Alien 3boot.

No kidding. The funny part is, looking back at it, they've actually been gradually drifting towards this for a shockingly long time - I remember being surprised and baffled by pro-Putin sentiments as far back as the latter half of the Dubya administration. What I really wasn't expecting was the readiness with which these people were willing to make the jump from "allies because he likes oppressing gay people too" to "straight-up lapdog for the guy."

Totally forgot there a second that actors age too.

How about casting a chin-a-like and have Weller do voice-over work? What? Don't look at me like that.

Just put Weller in the ping pong ball green screen suit.

Weller is too old for this unnecessary idea. Get Karl Urban up in this, his chin only game is the best in the biz.

Just redesign Robo so that his face is masked, but you get occasional shots of Weller behind it. Like they do with Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

If the plot doesn't involve this team-up, all is lost:

Didn't Robocop fight Terminator? Weller vs Arnie, let's do it.

Or just make a Past their Prime shared universe, maybe fight Alien, Predator, Die Hard etc.

That comic-- Avatar Press house art style at its worst.

RoboCop 2 is the Ghostbusters 2 of RoboCop movies.

THE TWO JAKES is the ROBOCOP 2 of CHINATOWN films.

Nope. I'm so very tired of sequels coming out past the franchise freshness date. Bill and Ted 3 is the only one that gets a pass.

I'd argue that a Blomkamp Robocop, while not necessary, is a lot more necessary than half of what Disney's putting out these days between the MCU, Star Wars, and live-action remakes of all their animated classics.

A low bar, yes, but some of you guys give passes to a LOT of unnecessary stuff because you're excited about it. Personally, I'm excited about the idea of a new Robocop movie with a story by the original writers that directly sequels the first one and is being directed by the guy that did District 9.

No movie is necessary.

I’m all in. Back in 2009 I thought Blomkamp would be perfect for this job.

Since then, only two directors have really implied greatness going back: the woman that directed this year’s Revenge (who is my choice for any Black Widow movie) and Jeremy Saulnier.

Shut up, take my money, and then I’ll punch you in the face for good seats.

While also acknowledging that depending on how the script turns out and which Blomkamp shows up (because there is a BIG difference between D9 Blomkamp and Chappie Blomkamp), this could fail spectacularly. But let them try, I say!

Man 2014 Robocop was such a lifeless plop of a movie. A few interesting ideas but no identity and terrible action. I really want to believe a dope modern Robocop film is possible. I think Blomkamp, for this very particular task, is as good a bet as any.

Of course, but I think we all recognize the semantic distinction here as far as when it comes to franchise properties and sequels and reboots and what-not vs. original stories.

Ahem, "original" stories.

Once a franchise has had enough bad films and shows and Canadian TV movies as ROBOCOP I feel like they should just keep pumpin' 'em out. You're bound to get a good one eventually. So let's see what Neill can do.

Like I don't know why there haven't been at least 12 HIGHLANDER reboots by now.

I can't knock this when I pitched a fit over him trying to erase Alien 3 from continuity.

And RoboCop 2 is some goofy fun.

Also true.

This should follow the current naming trend of 80s resurrection movies and just be called Murphy.

One thing I always appreciated about RoboCop 2 is that the hero is not the title character.

Well, it has to be R rated, naturally. I guess that with Trump in charge we're more likely to accept the kind of mad and terrible future the Robocop movies promise. Keep Robocop 2, though. That film is great.

The original sequel script from Neumier/Miner in the 80's had Bixby Snyder ("I'd buy that for a dollar!") running for President.

So still the only one who likes nu-Robocop.

I’ll accept it.
 I think all Marvel films are okay. This is my design.

Except for Thor 2: the literal worst.

nu-Robocop has one amazing scene (the "reveal" to Murphy of what has become of his body).

Other than that?  It's just a misfire for me on a lot of levels.
