MGM Sets Joel Kinnaman For ‘Robocop’
BY MIKE FLEMING | Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: MGM has closed its deal with Joel Kinnaman to play the title role in Robocop, the remake that is being directed by Jose Padilha, helmer of two action packed Elite Squad films.  Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing. Josh Zetumer wrote the script.

Deadline revealed that the offer had gone to Kinnaman to take the role originated by Peter Weller in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven original. Kinnaman most recently turned in a memorable performance in the Daniel Espinosa-directed Safe House opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. He burst on the scene in the AMC series The Killing and prior to that he starred in the Espinosa-directed Snabba Cash. Hollywood is desperately trying to find male stars that studios can build movies around. Kinnaman, who’s repped by UTA and Magnolia Entertainment’s Shelley Browning, has his ticket to the big game.

So the remake will be a 90 minute long meme?

That's brilliant.

Kudos, Jose Padilha, kudos.

Samuel L. Jackson is joining the cast of Robocop, MGM’s remake of the classic sci-fi action movie.

Jose Padilha is directing the film, which sees Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title hero, a cop named Alex Murphy who is brought back from the brink of death and turned into a cyborg police officer. Gary Oldman has already been cast as his scientist-creator.

Jackson will play Pat Novak, a charismatic TV mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world.

Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman are producing the movie, which is eyeing a September shoot in Toronto and has a tentative release date of summer 2013.

Jackson, who is on screen as Nick Fury in The Avengers, is currently shooting Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s revenge drama. He is repped by ICM, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman.

Michael Keaton Joins ‘Robocop’ Remake
BY MIKE FLEMING | Deadline

BREAKING: Michael Keaton has been set to play the role of Raymond Sellars in the MGM/Columbia Pictures’ RoboCop remake. Sellars is the CEO of the corporation that builds RoboCop, a role that Hugh Laurie was expected to play until he dropped out before consummating a deal. The film, a re-imagining of the 1987 Paul Verhoeven cult classic, is scheduled to begin shooting next month. RoboCop will be released on August 9, 2013.

Keaton joins previously announced Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Abbie Cornish in the Jose Padilha-directed film.

“Michael is the final addition to the amazing cast we have assembled for this film and it is so great to have the last puzzle piece in place. It is thrilling that everything has come together to bring this innovative new vision of RoboCop to life. We’ve got a great script, a great cast, some killer ED-209’s and I can’t wait to get Alex Murphy back on the streets,” said Padilha.

It’s good to see Keaton back in a mainstream film.

I feel bad that I kinda bashed the very idea of remaking this film to my Brazilian friend the other day. I had no idea Padilha was directing! Bus 174 is so so good. I've heard nothing but good things about Elite Squad and it shows the guy can handle action. I've learned from RK to hold my tongue on my opinions of remakes before I've even seen them..but this one looks like a goer.

Yeah, I think the idea of remaking this story kind of makes sense. I'm not saying this is gonna be better than the original, because it is just this perfect action movie, and it has a dark sense of humor and some gore that will not be possible to reproduce on a big budget/big studio production today. Anyway, there are a lot of interesting things that can be said about our world through a movie like this, about big corporations and security and artificial intelligence and whatnot. And also, Padilha is perfect for this, considering the Elite Squad movies are about super cops with a very personal code who will do everything they can to stop criminals and corrupt politicians. Hope it turns out very good.
