Continuing the story from Dynamite’s Robocop series, America has fallen into a landscape of revolution and chaos and OCP has taken over Old Detroit from the authorities in a political coup. It’s up to Robocop and what’s left of the Old Detroit Police Department to try and make it out of the state in order to get help from the US military. But ED-309s patrol the streets and OCP has a new, deadly robot prototype to send after Murphy and co. Meanwhile, Robocop’s sanity continues to crumble along with his country.

Director Jose Padilha, the man tapped to direct the upcoming Robocop reboot, recently sat down with Crave Online and spoke about what he’s been brainstorming about the project. This will be Padilha’s first big Hollywood movie and we can’t wait to see how the Brazilian director will do. The way he talks about his preference for handheld-camera work truly makes as wonder how Padilha, a man well known for his action sequences, will deliver some of the action we’re sure to see in the reboot.
José Padilha, the man chosen to direct the upcoming Robocop reboot, has apparently set his sights on Michael Fassbender to portray Alex Murphy (ie, Robocop). A video (spoken entirely in Portuguese) has surfaced in which Padilha expresses his wishes to have Fassbender come on board.
