ISCHOOLGUIDE.COM – In 2014, Brazilian director José Padilha’s Robocop reboot tanked in the box-office as it only attained $58 million in the United States. This was considered a flop as the film’s production was budgeted at $100 million. In addition to its commercial failure, the film gained negative ratings on top-ranking film review sites such as Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB.

Despite the commercial flop in the US and the film being critically panned prior to release, the reboot has made its strides in international markets such as Asia and Europe. According to Cinemablend, “the reboot has crossed the $51 million mark, domestically. Here’s a number, though, that will really turn your head. RoboCop has banked $136 million overseas. Which means, globally, the reboot is fast approaching the $200 million mark.”

While this keeps hope for a sequel, don’t expect it to be a top priority for Sony’s upcoming films. As reported by Cinemablend, Sony will be open to a new project if the right idea comes along. Moreover, director José Padilha and lead actor Joel Kinnaman who played Alex Murphy have yet to be tapped for a second run.

Director José Padilha just recently directed “Nacros,” a Netflix original series based on the famous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar while Kinnaman is set to co-star in another Hollywood blockbuster, DC’s “Suicide Squad.”

As for his inclination on joining the sequel for the reboot, Kinnaman recently stated on Toronto Sun, “I’d be surprised if we do another one, but I’d be down.” He then jested, “I have to, it’s in my contract.” Based on a an interview with IGN, good news for fans of this reboot is that star Gary Oldman stated that he would commit to doing a sequel as long as he would be able to work with director Jose Padilha once again.
