Josh Zetumer Penning “Robocop” Reboot

Scribe Josh Zetumer is set to pen the reboot of the “Robocop” franchise for MGM reports Variety.

The hiring comes just a week after the company signed Brazilian director Jose Padilha to helm the project, and confirms it is aggressively moving forward with the film after it having being stuck in limbo for several years.

Zetumer worked on the likes of the proposed “Dune” remake and the pre-Tony Gilroy script for the upcoming “The Bourne Legacy”. Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, Brad Fischer and David Thwaites will produce the reboot.
