“I’m working at MGM on it. It has all the cool stuff about RoboCop expect no RoboCop.I’m working with these two writers, Dave Parkin and Rob Gibbs, who bought this idea to a TV producer friend of mine when then brought it to me. The first time I heard it I knew it was a cool idea because I could see a lot of things you could do with it. It’s such an interesting character.”

He is an actualized corporate predator but nobody necessarily starts out being the bad guy.
