    So they swap Robocops female partner with a male, and make the chief a woman when it was a man in the original? Actually he was a sergeant but still I don't have much hope for this. Please see Fright Night, Total Recall, Footloose, Nightmare on Elm Street as reference.

    @bawnian-dexeus Yeah, that gets you a lot of what's going on in the world. Carmen Sandiego teaches you a lot of geography, genealogy, culture and those types of things! along with some language work... in almost every single language

    @writer220 I am right there with you when it comes to remakes... I hate the lack of creativity anymore... hardly anyone can deliver original works of art anymore

    Hope this is good after all of this, I hate remakes but when it's something I like I'll watch it to see if it is worth it.

    @mcleve02 oh yeah, I saw that also. but hopefully that will all be corrected by time they shoot the movie.

    @jasdjqs I would love to see it, but after the last article that came out for this, I am worried it is going to be bad... The plots they are working with are very high risk...

    @mcleve02 i am sure this movie will not miss, looks like it will be a good movie when all the production is done, and re-writing the script to make it right and true to the story. I got high hope for this movie, One of the few remakes i would like to see.
