Robocop Remake Coming in 2010

If you were one of the few people holding your breath anxiously for a remake of Paul Verhoeven’s “Robocop”, then you’re in luck, Mister No Taste in Movies, because MGM is going to be giving you said remake in 2010 — or at least, that’s according to this first teaser poster for the movie that SuperheroHype recently uncovered at the Licensing International Expo 2008 currently taking place over there in New York.

The 1987 original, directed by Paul Verhoeven (“Starship Troopers”), starred Peter Weller as a Detroit city cop in the near future who is killed by a gang of criminals, but his brain is rescued and inserted into a robotic cop — aka Robocop. Things get complicated when Robocop encounters the same gang that killed him, and memories of his old life returns.

The original was an orgy of over-the-top violence that was also probably one of the smartest action movies ever made in the ’80s, and still is to this day. The film spawned two lackluster sequels and a TV show, and now — a remake.

    Well, at least the cast of characters could be it:

    ROBOCOP (2010)?!
    IN MY OPINION, THE CAST COULD BE THE FOLLOW:

    Well, Daniel Craig ,The 007, could be: Alex J.Murphy/Robocop in the role!
    Anne Lewis could be: Rachel Weisz or katie Holmes

    Sargeant Warren Reed could be Samuel L. Jackson or Morgan Freeman(with make up to looks younger as the original actor who plays him looks liked)

    The Old Man= John Hurt or Clint Eastwood

    Richard “Dick” Jones= Jack Nicholson or Tommy Lee Jones, or maybe: Willem Dafoe(The Vilain from Spiderman movie)

    Robert “Bob” Morton= Billy Zane( from Titanic, and The Phantom)

    Donald Johnson= Forrest Whitaker(The Last King of Scotland)
