"The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Samuel L. Jackson - who most recently played Nick Fury in Marvel's The Avengers - is joining the cast of MGM's RoboCop reboot, which begins production this September. Joel Kinnaman (The k!lling) is set to star as cop Alex Murphy, while Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon in Chris Nolan's Batman films) will play Murphy's scientist-creator Norton.

The site says that Jackson will play Pat Novak, "a charismatic TV mogul and a powerful force in the RoboCop world." Jose Padilha is set to direct the reboot, which will be produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman. Jackson is currently filming Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained"

I dont care what nobody says, robocop is classic. The sequel was dope too...it got ruined with part three tho. Overall, a good first 2 flics, would go see the remake.

I hated Robocop because it was pure violence, especially how they shot Murphy up. That part was horrible!

The real question is, why would you watch robocop in the first place without expecting mass violence?

You think they were going to make it a film about a robot going to pre-schools preaching drug awareness???

80's action movies brought to the table what lacks in TODAY'S action movies.......


pure-over-the-edge-violence.......

Joel Kinnaman is solid in The Killing tv show and is like the Brad Pitt of Sweden from what I hear.

I was 7 years old when I first saw this movie and that was the last time. Yes, the movie is a classic, I will admit that.

I am disappointed with that still shot if it is really the robocop custome, then this goes to show the people who worked on the 80s were allot more creative and made allot of effort into the original vision. Peter Weller. Looked like half robot half man, that still shot is just a man in a black custome. No fucking creativity at all.

that still shot actually IS just a man in a black costume..lol peter weller looked like half robot half man because he was just that since we all saw the film and not judged it based on a still shot with him wearing a silver costume back in 1986 prior to when the film was released. lol

on the real tho, this project has been passed around more than the Pablo Escobar biopic script. for some time, Darren Aranofsky was supposed to write & direct. seems like Jose Padilha will be given the directing chair, not such a bad choice, came to fame with the flick "Elite Force" [Tropa de Elite] making this his debut hollywood feature.

in the times of unoriginality and ADD-inducing CGIs, im half surprised with yet another re-boot/make/take on a classic. dont really have much of an opinion on it yet as its way too early to do so but will add on to this thread as shit progresses.

i'd def buy it for a dollar tho...

I'm hoping that they're using this god awful black suit as a canvas for the CGI.

i loved robocop when i was a kid. i pretty much know every line from the first movie.

i dont mind them making a remake but like that suit from the picture looks fucking awful, no different from batman. i hope it can capture the atmosphere of the first film, not too much cgi and keep it real. i hope ED-209 is in it to.
