Guys, guys, come on - they wanted an established brand of films where they can use a bunch of CGI to make a transforming Iron Man-y supercop. He's gonna do all sorts of cool shit and blow up bad guys. THATS the reason they're making the movie. It's not rocket surgery.
I just dont understand why they have to say, oh its robocop. It would be very simple to create something new - EVEN IF ITS JUST A NEW NAME - but they do this because its already an established brand. Its got built-in marketing.
