Comic-Con: Jose Padilha Talks RoboCop

July 20, 2013


Following their panel yesterday, our very own ShockTillYouDrop.com has spoken with RoboCop director Jose Padilha regarding the upcoming film.

Shock:  What's the percentage of the film devoted to RoboCop's creation?

Padilha:  Maybe 30%.  You'll see and understand how RoboCop is made from the inside.  The idea is, you try to keep the man so he's an accountable robot.  His brain still have memories, emotions, all of the human part.  The body is robot...

Shock:  We've seen photos of RoboCop and he has a human hand...

Padilha:  Because in a sense, the corporation has to sell the idea that this robot is still a man and can be accountable.  How do I greet you as a man?  You shake his right hand.  There's a marketing reason for it [in the world].  There's also a whole commentary on marketing.  When they're building RoboCop, they're thinking like they would sell a computer from Apple or something.  They run focus groups to find out how he looks.
