Rogue Science

Gary Oldman plays Dr. Norton, the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Jackie Earle Haley is Rick Mattox, a military tactician who trains RoboCop. His lab was inspired by the scientist Francis Bacon. “I wanted to keep that set very sterile, rectilinear,” says Whist.  “We had a subtext reference of Francis Bacon, who was concerned with the man and the psyche trapped within the constructs of society; in Sellars’ office, he has a triptych of Bacons behind him.  That’s a very strong metaphor for the RoboCop story, so it was also our starting point."
