Video Interview: Director Jose Padilha talks ‘RoboCop’

by Phil Wheat

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

In this interview for Nerdly, film correspondent James Kleinmann asks director Jose Padilha why he wanted to revisit the story of RoboCop nearly 30 years later.
