Do we really need a new 'Robocop' movie?

"District 9" director Neill Blomkamp is making a new "Robocop" movie entitled "Robocop Returns," and the announcement is receiving mixed reactions. Some trust Blomkamp to properly breathe new life into the franchise. But others argue moviegoers could care less about "Robocop." The 2014 reboot got a rotten rating of 49 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and only made $60 million in the U.S. Do we really need a new 'Robocop' installment?

According to Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: MGM is developing a new installment of RoboCop and has set District 9 director Neill Blomkamp to helm the picture, which is titled RoboCop Returns. The studio hopes to revive a franchise that began with the Paul Verhoeven-directed satirical sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987. Original writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner are producing and exec producing, respectively. Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote the Terminator film that Tim Miller is shooting, will rewrite the script that Neumeier and Miner wrote years ago as a planned sequel to Verhoeven’s hit, an installment that never happened. That duo is creatively involved in moving forward their creation for the first time since the original.
