Can't say we're entirely surprised to hear this. The guy they previously hired to work on the script was a newcomer, after all!
Back in November, RoboCop reboot director Jose Padilha gave us LOTS of updates on his upcoming RoboMovie, which was originally being written by first-time screenwriter Josh Zetumer.
Now, we've learned that Gran Torino writer Nick Schenk has been brought on to work on the screenplay.
We're not sure if this means that Zetumer was fired or not…but most likely this new guy is just gonna beef up the script, as opposed to give it a page one rewrite.
Regardless, we're just glad to see that progress is being made on this one! We've been following the RoboReboot for a while now, and we're curious to see how it all plays out after soooooo many years in development hell!
What do U think? Will this new writer make the RoboScript good enough so they can start up pre-production on the movie???
