Detroit Residents May Not Get A RoboCop Statue…But They Will Get A Reboot!

robocop reboot in the works once again at mgm

Yesterday, we heard the heartwarming tale of Detroit residents and their efforts to raise money to get a RoboCop statue erected.

Detroit Mayor Dave Bing may not be giving the O-K for the statue, but at least the half-human/half-robot will return in some form, now that MGM HAS given the O-K on the long-delayed RoboCop reboot!

Other remakes/reboots in the works at MGM include new versions of Mr. Mom, The Idolmaker, and Poltergeist.

Come on, Bing! How can you pass on the statue NOW? RoboCop is about to become a HUGE deal once again! This is a PERFECT time to build that statue!

Just sayin'!

Are U excited for the RoboCop reboot? How about the statue? Hah!

Detroit Residents Raise $$$ For RoboCop Statue

detroit residents raise money for a robocop statue

It was an important enough film to warrant a place in the prestigious Criterion Collection, so why shouldn't it get a statue?

We haven't heard much lately about Darren Aronofsky's potential reboot of RoboCop, but in the meanwhile, Detroit residents are rebooting it in their own way…by raising $$$ for a robo-statue!

That's right! Detroit residents have already put together over $56,000 for a Robocop statue! Wowza!

Here's what Detroit Mayor Dave Bing had to say about it on his Twitter page:

"There are not any plans to erect a statue to RoboCop. Thank you for the suggestion."

LOLz! Here's what Jerry Paffendorf, a campaign leader for the RoboCop statue's erection had to say about it:

"If people can raise money for something like RoboCop, then they can do it for their neighborhoods or their schools. Sometimes it takes a RoboCop to open up the consciousness of these things."

We'd LOVE to see this happen! Why don't you make a contribution, Eminem! You grew up in Detroit!

What do U think? Should the Mayor of Detroit support this???
