The kick ass movie blog Coming Soon has the first leaked production stills for the Robocop remake (more pics over there), so here’s Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, Safe House) as Alex Murphy/Robocop. He’s apparently a big fan of black now. Coming Soon reports:
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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 (Kinnaman) 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.
Confession time: The original Robocop is one of my all time favorite movies and I quote it almost daily. The suit looks a little too Dark Knighterish to me, but please keep in mind that this movie also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, and Michael K. Williams. The only I would have came harder just now is if just found out that Michael Shannon was my biological father.
