That’s right people, film makers are bringing back the ill-fated policeman turned super cop. This time, Robocop is reportedly going to be even more futuristic than the previous versions. What is this, Robocop 4.0? The critics are already asking, why anyone would want to resurrect this, B at best, film series and why Samuel L Jackson would even want to sign on?

Believe it or not, Robocop has a cult-like following of fan. The fans have been waiting since 1993 for their next Alex Murphy fix. The first three movies in the series became a kitschy household name in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It looks like the younger generation will now get their version of the cyber cop.

In addition, reportedly added to the remake are Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and Gary Oldman as well.

Jose Padilha will direct the remake and it looks like filming will take place in Toronto. Padilha is hoping for a 2013 release, but the Robocop fans will just have to wait and see.
