Freeze! Don’t move! Put your hands above your head, and get down on your knees. The redux of RoboCop has a release date. Directive 4 has been cancelled. Thank you for your cooperation. Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere there is a crime happening.
Sony Pictures will be distributing MGM’s RoboCop, a remake of the 1987 Paul Verhoeven-directed science fiction film that will star Joel Kinnaman (pictured right) in the role originated by Peter Weller. The film’s being directed by Jose Padilha, helmer of the two Elite Squad films. Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing. Josh Zetumer wrote the script.
RoboCop has been following a fast track since MGM landed “The Killing”‘s Kinnaman, who starred in Snabba Cash as well as The Darkest Hour and turned in a small but memorable role opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in Safe House.
Look for the flick in theatres on August 9th, 2013.
