Four years in the making, the film is set to go into significant detail about RoboCop‘s journey to screen.
Paul Verhoeven’s film, released at the time by Orion Pictures, was set in a dystopian and crime-ridden Detroit and follows a terminally wounded cop who returns to the force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories.
