No denying the sequels are inferior. I just think it's lazy to forcefully retcon them.

2 & 3 both wrote off characters that pretty much HAVE do be done justice in a proper Robocop sequel. 2 ditched Murphy's family instantly and 3 killed off Lewis and The Old Man way too fast. 2 is fun and 3 can be enjoyable as well, but I think that in order to make the best possible sequel to the original film is to pick up right at the end of that and ignore 2 & 3. I love this director and this is the best movie news I've heard in months!

I would agree. I would be happy to have them go back to the "main" continuity, and they don't even half to elaborate much within the movie about it being a sequel to them. They should be able to distance themselves from it well enough.

Ugh...

This should never have really been a franchise.

I love the first two films...but everything after
that makes me feel sick.

I'm definitely liking what I'm hearing so far, glad to have Robocop continuing again.

You know what the second movie should have been, Robocops! Think about it a whole team of Robocops.

Is it wrong for me to say RoboCop 3 as panned as it is. Its a guilty pleasure of mine and IMO find it to be at most a timewaster.

Surely its at least better then the remake. We could all agree on that for sure.

No it's not wrong for you to say you like a movie.

I personally don't really care about any of the RoboCop films except the first one.

Screenwriter to the original ROBOCOP , Ed Neumeier, talks about Neill Blomkamp's sequel to the original film. Based off Neumeier, and Michael Miner's original sequel script crafted back in the days of yore of 1988. But the Writers' Strike of that year ended up getting it stuck in development heck. But it'll be the basis for the new flick with some updates for modern times by screenwriter, Justin Rhodes.

Blomkamp is officially off Robocop. Hes got another film in the works and the studio is unwilling to wait.

That sucks, his directing style would be perfect for a new RoboCop.
