Paul Verhoeven’s film gets lovingly remade by more than 50 filmmakers using everything from live-action to puppets because “if anyone is going to ruin RoboCop, it’s us.”
Connected through various filmmaking channels (including Channel 101) we’re 50 filmmakers (amateur and professional) from Los Angeles and New York who have split the original RoboCop into individual pieces and have remade the movie ourselves. Not necessarily a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling. As big fans of the original RoboCop, and as filmmakers and film fans admittedly rolling our eyes at the Hollywood remake machine, we’ve elected to do this remake thing our own way.
José Padilha’s remake starring Joel Kinnaman hits theaters February 12th.
