Jose Padilha, director of Elite Squad and creative force behind the remake of Robocop, has expressed interest in casting Michael Fassbender as the aforementioned action hero.
The script that he and Josh Zetumer have been working on is nearing completion and they’re having a meeting with MGM this next week to discuss the future of the project.
“I will not repeat what [Paul] Verhoeven has done so clearly and strongly. Instead I try to make a film that will address topics that Verhoeven untreated. If you are a man changes into a robot, how do you do that? What is the difference between humans and robots developed? What is free will? What does it mean to lose your free will? Those are the issues that I think.”
His film Elite Squad 2: The Enemy Within came out this year and you can read our glowing review HERE
