While I think Miller could do an outstanding job with the material, a $40 million budget isn't going to produce a film that can be a blockbuster. But a return to the property's roots could result in a cool movie, especially if it has a look all its own, like Sin City and (perhaps) The Spirit.
If this is true I'm not interested. There are enough bad movies that come out without producers *intentionally* making crap. I'd rather they show some ingenuity and try to overcome a low budget instead of apologizing for it through self-reflexive jokes.
Robocop 2 was supposed to be robocop 3, and both of them had heavy cuts, hence Miller quit hollywood and got back to doing comics, namely Sin City so he wouldn't have to answer to anyone. He had offers to adapt Sin City for years before allowing Rodriguez to do it, and that only came about because Rodriguez shot the opening with no permission to convince him.
So what I'm saying is, you can't blame those shit robocop films on Miller
He is a genius, and with a $40 million budget it sounds like he'll go substance over crap. Good gravy, I will take a Sci Fi film with less CGI, and more story over a $200 million time waster of a movie.
I can't wait for this. In a perfect world Miller would make this film with no CGI at all, and use actual sets. Hollywood genre films have become too normal. Think outside the box!
What Miller has stated is that the film is going to be a joke. What is being described sounds incredibly dumb. I'm all for thinking outside the box, but this is like thinking in a trash can at a flea market.
