Released in 1987, RoboCop has since become one of the most iconic and successful movies of the 1980s, a movie that was well ahead of its time and has left a lasting impression on fans across the globe. Three years in the making, Christopher Griffiths' upcoming RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop will feature script pages to concept art, stories of stop motion and sound design, and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew of the beloved '80s classic.
Following the release of last year's trailer, Griffiths has begun teasing the discovery of “never before seen” footage from behind-the-scenes of the film’s production, and today we have a scene to share with you! In the short video, Paul McCrane explains his casting as the villain Emil, followed by unseen footage of him shooting a big ass gun!
RoboDoc is a fully independent retrospective into the making of RoboCop and its cultural impact over the last 30 years. Supported by dozens of the original cast and crew RoboDoc is made by fans of the movie for fans of the movie. The crew have already received support from over 20 of the cast and crew as well as the RoboCop Archive and there is no doubt that by the time of production many more key players will be attached and share their amazing stories about one of the iconic movies ever-made.
The documentary is made as a labour of love by a team of RoboCop fans, Director Christopher Griffiths states: “To say that RoboCop is a big part of my life is an understatement. Just ask anybody who knows me. It is the film that started it all from me at an age when I probably shouldn’t have been watching it like many others, but I did and I have grown up with it and found new things each time I watch it.”
Stay tuned for news on the doc's release!
