Reboots and Remakes: The Latest on ‘RoboCop’, ‘Starship Troopers’, and ‘Batman’

It might appear like everything’s going smoothly for the RoboCop remake, but director Jose Padilha‘s friend Fernando Meirelles reveals that there’s more going on that meets the eye. Jose, who apparently has to fight to get his ideas heard, has called working on the remake ‘hell.’ Aside from that, he’s also had to deal with Hugh Laurie bowing out from the movie. But they were quick to find a replacement, with Michael Keaton stepping in to play Raymond Sellars.

Producer of the Starship Troopers remake Edward Neumeier was recently interviewed, and while he didn’t give very much away about the movie, he did say that he suggested the writers take a field trip so they can experience military culture for themselves. That should make for an interesting script.

Lastly, we’ve got the rumored Batmam reboot. I’m sure few expected that a reboot could come as early as 2015. Seriously? That’s just three years from now. Three years from when Christopher Nolan‘s epic Batman trilogy ended with The Dark Knight Rises, and three years too soon. But if the rumors are right, then you can expect a new Batman movie after the upcoming Justice League of America movie hits.
