Robocop remake?

I'm a huge fan of cyborgs in fiction, as one can probably tell from my books Remembrance and The Perils of Forgotten Pain. Affecting memories, and the body, with enhancements is a fascinating subject.

The movie that many associate with cyborgs, other than the Six Million Dollar Man, is Robocop. The 80's version was a violence filled, dark comedy that did a surprisingly good job at touching on themes of humanity with the character of Robocop and how he dealt with his memories of his human life and ultimate rebellion against those that made him. Reminds me of Herman, a little bit, from Perils.

Now, though, they're remaking the movie. I'm not sure whether to be excited or dissapointed.

Here's hoping they do the idea justice.
