In the news that perhaps has made me happiest, Disney XD is apparently making a version of RoboCop for kids. It’s called Motor City, and involves a futuristic Detroit where an evil billionaire called Abraham Kane bought out the city went it went bankrupt and “banned all freedoms.” The characters will apparently descend from the floating city of Detroit (it is the future, after all) and regroup in old Detroit where they will be guided in the art of rebellion by the ghosts of Michael Moore and Eminem. I made that last bit up, but this does sound pretty rad.
