RoboCop

Casting for Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop just keeps on going, with what feels like a new exciting addition every week.

Newly signed on is Jackie Earle Haley, who will be playing a character named Maddox, a military trainer for the cyborg cop.

RoboCop stars Joel Kinnaman in the lead, as a cop who’s nearly killed on duty and turned into a half man, half machine super cop created as part of a new initiative to really crack down on crime in the city.

Hugh Laurie

Earlier this week we reported that Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson were joining the cast of Jose Padilha’s Robocop reboot. But the film still lacked a force for Robocop to deal with. That has all changed.

Rather than spend time with a vacation after working on eight seasons of the Fox medical drama House, actor Hugh Laurie is quickly getting back to work. And he is doing it in a very big way. Laurie is now signed on to play as the villain of the movie.

RoboCop

Say what you will about remakes and reboots (yes, they’re usually a horrible idea and a classic money-grab technique), but when someone takes the time to put one together, there is always that chance it could be good.

We’re still far from knowing whether or not MGM’s reboot of the still-incredible 1987 Paul Verhoeven sci-fi classic, RoboCop, will pleasantly surprise us, but what is known is that the studio and director Jose Padilha are doing a fine job putting together an intriguing cast.

It was reported recently that the legendary Samuel L. Jackson had joined the cast, and now Abbie Cornish has been offered a role as well.

RoboCop Remake Gary Oldman

You’ve seen him play tag-team partner to Batman and Harry Potter, now Gary Oldman will help RoboCop kick ass in Old Detroit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oldman has joined the cast of Jose Padilha‘s RoboCop remake, which stars Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as Officer Alex J. Murphy, a man resurrected and reborn as a cyborg police officer.

THR says that 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.”

In my recent feature RoboCop: Electric Dreams and Cybernetic Wishes, I referenced an April report from The Tracking Board that first mentioned the character of Norton. At the time, Edward Norton was in talks for the role.

RoboCop

Yes, MGM is still trying to remake RoboCop, as much as you hoped and wished it would go away if no one talked about it for a while.

It’s being reported that Nick Schenk has been hired to work on the screenplay for the long-in-development remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic. Schenk doesn’t have a whole lot of writing credits to his name, but one big title he did work on the script for was Clint Eastwood’s tragically non-Oscar nominated drama, Gran Torino.

Ever since MGM announced several years back that they were putting a remake of the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop into production not much progress has been made, which fans of the original film would see as a blessing. For a time Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain) was attached to direct the remake, but he moved on to other things. Most recently Brazilian filmmaker Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) was handed the reins of the RoboCop redux, and the director gave an interview to Comic Book Movie about his plans for the remake and what he hopes to accomplish by taking on a beloved genre film.
