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.

Script To Screen
Join us for an extraordinary insight into the writing of the first episode of one of the biggest international TV hits, Downton Abbey, reading the screenplay and watching the episode with Julian Fellowes.
Our first ever MUSICAL Script To Screen is also an exclusive opportunity to examine the specific challenges of crafting an international hit under the creative conditions that really allow the movie to… pardon the pun… sing.
Without doubt, The Long Good Friday is one of the greatest British films ever produced, one that invented the entire gangster British genre. Read the script, watch the film, listen to the writer.
