Gary Oldman Joins ‘Robocop’ Remake. I’d Buy That For A Dollar!

Hollywood’s latest remake that isn’t necessary and makes us want to vomit cyborg feeding baby food is Paul Verhoven’s ‘Robocop,’ the 1987 thriller which so perfectly used violence and dark humor that it’s one of the greatest action films of all time. At least a worthy actor will be joining the remake being helmed by Jose Padilha.

The Hollywood Reporter states that the iconic Gary Oldman, who is so good he could convince you to buy anything if he did a commercial, will be co-starring in the story of Alex Murphy, a cop who is nearly killed in the line of duty only to be reborn as an ass kicking machine of robo-justice.

Oldman will play Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop, and, according to THR, “finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.” At least he’s not playing the Clarence Boddicker role. Oldman will next be seen in an art house movie that opens in July called ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’

Joel Kinnaman is set to star as Alex Murphy. Shooting will take place in Toronto and we should be seeing the film in summer 2013. Your move, Hollywood.
