Jennifer Ehle, RoboCopMore possible casting news for the upcoming remake of RoboCop. Who’s next to journey to Detroit for a bit of futuristic law enforcement fun? Read on for the details. Then cross your fingers that this will be as good as the announced cast.

According to Deadline, Jennifer Ehle (pictured) is in negotiations to join the cast of RoboCop. The two-time Tony winner would star in the role of Liz Kline in the flick.

If cast, she’ll join the previously announced Hugh Laurie, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley in the film with “The Killing”‘s Joel Kinnaman in the title role.

Currently RoboCop has a tentative release date of August 9th, 2013.

Synopsis
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front.

Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father, and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life.

He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

José Padilha (Elite Squad) directs this reimagining of the tale of part man, part machine, all cop.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • JB Demented

    I have no idea who She is. But reguardless, this movie will fail.

  • Rottenjesus

    More than likely going to fall just as flat as the completely useless TOTAL RECALL remake despite the cast.

  • Vanvance1

    This movie needs:

    1 – A ton of graphic violence with consequences.

    2 – A lot of satiric humour.

    3 – Highly quotable dialogue.

    4 The RoboCop theme music which cannot be bettered (though I’m open to a techno/trance remix for variety).

    5 – It must be a hard R or Unrated.

    The studio should remember that trying to make a kinder, gentler RoboCop movie resulted in RoboCop 3 which not only tanked but put the nail in the coffin for Orion pictures. DO NOT NEUTER ROBOCOP!

  • Terminal

    You have to admit, the cast is fantastic.
