It seems that Jose Padilha's "RoboCop" remake will be a far cry from the original Paul Verhoven version. It was HitFix's Drew McWeeny who has shared a number of spoilerish tweets, complaining about the script of the upcoming reboot. Among those highlighted in his postings was a report that [SPOILER ALERT!] Padilha's version of Robocop will resemble a Transformer.

Suggesting that Kurt Wimmer's work in "Total Recall" was better than Nick Schenk's revision of "RoboCop", McWeeny criticized Schenk's script which included four different versions of the titular cyborg. He wrote, "In the film, when Murphy is turned into Robocop 1.0, it's described 'a high-tech version of the '80s suit.' Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. 'He looks like a toy from the '80s!' "
