RoboCop: Rogue City – The Weller Man Come
As any RoboCop fan can tell you, so much of the cybernetic hero’s appeal comes from the man under the shiny chrome helmet: actor Peter Weller, whose performances as Alex Murphy (both pre- and post-RoboCopificiation) transformed the character from a cool design into an action movie icon.
It’s great news, then, that Teyon was able to recruit Weller, now 75, to reprise his role in RoboCop: Rogue City. “It was definitely an unforgettable experience working with Peter Weller,” said game director Piotr Łatocha. “Hearing him bring the legendary Alex Murphy back to life was truly incredible. What really amazed me was how easily Peter slipped into character and embodied the hero’s essence, nailing the tone and cadence of his speech from the very first line.”
In fact, Łatocha said, Weller’s impact on the game went beyond his performance. “He even gave us some valuable feedback on how RoboCop would react in certain situations, which we incorporated into the script.”
