StudioCanal has revealed this new UK trailer and statement from director Jose Padilha for the upcoming remake of ‘RoboCop.’ “In the future with autonomous robots you can have a robot in the middle of the desert going after terrorists and you don’t even know the robot is there and the robot is making its own decisions. And let’s say this robot kills a kid, who is to blame? Is it the company that made the robot, is it the army that deployed the robot, the software handler or the manufacturer? Who is to blame? When you start making machines who make decisions over life and death, something fundamental changes…” – José Padilha.

THR bring word that the ‘A Few Good Men’ stars Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson could reunite in ‘El Presidente,’ with Cruise playing a Secret Service agent and Nicholson taking on the role of an alcoholic, womanizing former commander-in-chief. The project has been in development since 2010 and originally had Jay Roach attached to direct. Now the outlet has learned that not only has Doug Liman come aboard to direct the project – he worked with Cruise on the sci-fi action movie ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ which will be released next year, but that he and Cruise have made a last ditch effort to court Jack Nicholson to play the ex-president.
Sources say that last week Tom Cruise and Doug Liman went to Jack Nicholson’s home to convince the semi-retired and extremely picky actor to take the role (Nicholson last starred in 2010’s ‘How Do You Know’). Cruise reportedly told Nicholson that he won’t do the movie without him.
