Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) was originally confirmed to director the remake, but left the project due to numerous delays.

The first scene shot was the one where RoboCop catches the car keys leaving the police station. It took nearly 13 hours to shoot, and with it only being only day one of production, Orion seriously considered canceling the film.


Robocop Peter Weller

Weller admitted to Roger Ebert that he lost three pounds a day after sweating in the suit during 100-degree temperatures.
