The Daily Blam! has some reports from the set of the RoboCop remake, and it’s not looking too good.
Director Fernando Mereilles (City of God) is friends with RoboCop director Jose Padilha and said his friend described working on the film as “hell”. Mereilles goes on to say the studio is rejecting nine out of ten of Padilha’s ideas and Padilha is constantly arguing with the studio and he’s getting bitter.
Never fear though, Merreilles still thinks RoboCop will be a good film. Of course, if you read Drew McWeeny’s Twitter review of the script, you may have some well justified misgivings.
Lastly, The Daily Blam! gives us a rundown of RoboCop‘s cast list, and there’s an interesting name on it: Peter Weller.
Is Weller returning for a cameo? Does he have a larger part? Is this just a misprint? I guess we’ll have to wait for a confirmation to be sure.
Thanks to LR reader Dario for giving us a heads up on this one.
