Robocop remake, Amazing Spider-man, Harlan Ellison, Star Trek 2 and Evil Dead!
Robocop remake taking cues from the original movie’s “social commentary/satirical slants”
Director José Padhila told Bleeding Cool the below about his thinking regarding his Robocop remake:
“Wars in the future are going to be fought with drones. We won’t send a plane with a pilot in, it will be drone. It’s getting that way now and ten years from now that’s how wars are going to be fought. But what if a drone goes wrong – who is to blame then? Do you blame the drone? And that problem asks if you can you consider a robot guilty of a crime. Or is it the corporation that made the robot that is guilty? How do you fight back against drones when you don’t have drones?”
That sounds like our recent battle with spam bots at this blog. Spam bots are the true Terminators of our age – unstoppable, remorseless, inhuman.
