The Man From the Future
Elite Squad: The Enemy Within
José Padilha is finally getting some press in the U.S. now that he has been tasked by MGM to helm the relaunch of the Robocop franchise that began with Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original movie. But, in his native Brazil, Padilha is already a household name as the Oscar-nominated writer of City of God and the director of the hard-hitting trilogy of wildy successful urban crime dramas Bus 174, Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within. Now, U.S. audiences are finally going to get an opportunity to see why Padilha has been compared to such acclaimed directors as Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola when Elite Squad: The Enemy Within opens in limited release on November 11th.
