MICHAEL FASSBENDER AS ROBOCOP?
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.
