We've been awaiting the Detroit RoboCop statue that Kickstarter donators paid for since March 26, 2011. And still nada. Might it take less time to put together a whole new RoboCop movie? Possibly. There is a new trailer for one expected in 2013 and it shows scenes of our fair downtown (Hi Ren Cen!). Huff Po Detroit says they'll be doing some filming locally (according to rumors) and that it will hit theaters in August next year. The crime-fighting police officer will be played by Joel Kinneman. Other stars signed-on include Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Hugh Laurie. Quick, someone revive Gawker Stalker maps!
