The French magazine Ragemag has a lengthy interview with Ed Neumeier, the writer of RoboCop and Starship Troopers, in advance of the José Padilha-directed RoboCop reboot. The writer discusses Google's Boston Dynamics acquisition, the similarities between his films and the modern world, and the new RoboCop, which comes out in US theaters on February 12th. No one involved asked his opinion on the film, he says, but "I'm pretty happy with what they did. I imagined that it would be much worse." That's a much stronger endorsement than most critics gave the movie.
