Michael Fassbender is pretty much the most awesome guy in the universe right now, so it makes total sense that every director attached to some kind of genre property is looking to secure Fassbender’s particular brand of badassery. Brazilian director José Padilha, who stepped in to the Robocop reboot following the departure of Darren Aronofsky, thinks Fassbender would make the perfect Robocop, and plans to meet with the actor soon to discuss the recently-completed screenplay.

Usually I would go into some long-winded diatribe about how actors fit into certain roles, and if reboots are a good idea or not, but in this case, fuck it. Fassbender owns the screen in anything he is in, so if this happens I will be more than ok with it. At this point, I’d pay my hard-earned ticket money to watch Fassbender dress up as Little Orphan Annie and punch baby seals in the face for two hours.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
