The Perfect Machine: Michael Fassbender Wanted for ‘RoboCop’

In an interview with Brazillian TV channel Globo 1, RoboCop director José Padilha tells that he plans on shooting in spring of 2012, with dreams of landing Michael Fassbender as the new Officer Alex J. Murphy (played in the 1987 version, and its sequels, by Peter Weller).

Now, let’s be serious here for a moment. After blowing every director’s minds with his performance in X-Men: First Class, Fassbender has booked a slew of major roles that include Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, and has been in talks for more than I can count on one hand. Truly, Fassbender is now at a level where he picks his projects. It’s nice that Padilha wants him, sh*t, we all do, but the odds are against him.

The original was about a cop who was near death and was drafted to become a powerful cyborg cop, until suppressed memories of his past life come back to haunt him.
