Gary Oldman Inventing a RoboCop
Another actor has joined the ranks of the upcoming remake of the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic RoboCop, and this guy really knows how to put things together. Such as half-human, half-cyborg law enforcement officials.
THR reports that Gary Oldman has inked a deal to star opposite Joel Kinnaman in MGM’s remake. Jose Padilha is directing the film, which is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman.
Kinnaman ("The Killing") is the title character, a cop named Alex Murphy who is brought back from the brink of death and turned into a cyborg police officer. Oldman will play Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop and finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.
While no start date has been set, the production is eyeing a shoot in Toronto and has a tentative release date of August 9th, 2013.
