RoboCop to be penned by Nick Schenk

RoboCop reboot director Jose Padilha has signed up Gran Torino writer Nick Schenk to pen the screenplay. MGM, the studio behind the reboot, says that it is planning for a Summer start.

Padilha, speaking about his take on the reboot, had this to say:

In the first ‘RoboCop’ when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?
