When asked about what attracted him to Robocop:
Weller:I read the script and knew right away that it was my kind of film - its themes are massive. RoboCop is medieval, man. You look at it and you see a kind of corporate, mercantile society crushing everything in its wake, just like in the Renaissance. Free trade and the massive flow of information has liberated society, but at the same time, you see an immense amount of greed - yuppies running all, saying I want that for me, man. RoboCop is an allegory about imperialisation, technology and humanity - this society takes the life of this guy, and also robs him of his innocence.
