's RoboCop (it's not a remake!) is due to land in February and SFX magazine has run a feature on the movie including an interview with star and a front cover image of the mechanized law enforcer.
Kinnamen has been at pains to stress that the movie is not a remake of the 's classic, but they do pay homage to the intelligence of the original:
It’s a great responsibility. Especially in a world where there’s a lot of remakes being made for cynical economic reasons. But having José as a director washed away those fears. The biggest respect you can pay to the original is to acknowledge it as a very intelligent movie, and try to make something intelligent to follow it up with, and not just replay old catchphrases. We kept one or two as a wink to the fans, but we did not try to remake the movie.
As a huge fan of Padhila's work - both Bus 174 and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within were incredible - I'm looking forward to RoboCop and think it's going to surprise a lot of people.
