WATCH: Colonel Robocop is the new face of KFC… it hurt to write that

February 24th, 2019 by Marc Comments


Em… what?

So, remember how Neil Blomkamp, who is trying to get a new RoboCop movie made (here), said that original Robocop Peter Weller is the ONLY choice to play the character again.
Well, sadly, Weller turned the role down.
And we thought that was that.
We were wrong.
KFC have just revealed a trio of very odd trailers starring Weller as – it hurts to write this – Colonel Robocop.
Honestly… we have no more to say.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
