RoboCop a sequel in disguise?

RoboCop.jpgWe were being led to believe that the new RoboCop film was going to be a reboot of the original and it was sounding more and more like a remake, well the official word has come out in the form of the tagline for the new film.

Although we don't yet know who the director will really be and there's still some confusion and astonishment around whether it is going to be Darren Aronofsky directing the film or not, it's looking pretty clear that this new film is a sequel.

Well, sequel in name. Let's look at the tag line that Bloody Disgusting managed to get from MGM and Phoenix Pictures:

"Present day Los Angeles, 20 years after the termination of the RoboCop program, the city decides to reinstate the program."

Oooh, now that sounds interesting, it really does. We're not going to ignore what's gone before, and in fact we're going to use it to make a bigger and better RoboCop. Now that works for me, and it's damn good that they're showing the original respect. What do you think?



Present day Los Angeles?

robocop was set in a near future Detroit.

why does every film need to be set in either LA or NYC?

Good point and I have absolutely no answer for you Scotty. Well maybe one, locations costs? Is it easier and cheaper to film those locations because they are cheaper, easier to access and there are so many other locations that look like them?

Anyone else have a proper answer?
