In 1987, Screenwriter Ed Neumeier showed the world a brilliant, visceral view of the future: Privatized police forces, urban decay, and over reliance on technology of humanity combine to make New Detroit a violent wasteland. Only one cyborg could save the citizens from the criminal gangs running rampant: ROBOCOP. Part man. Part machine. All cop.
Equally funny, invigorating, scathing, and sensational, Robocop spawned sequels, a television series, video games, and thirty years of devoted fans.
In the latest of LSF’s exclusive Script-To-Screen series, you can read the Robocop script in advance, then watch the movie as Neumeier discusses the experience writing one of the most effective social satires of all time.
A guilty pleasure to end LondonSWF18 on, and a wonderful way to spend Sunday afternoon.
