Taking quite some time to rebuild, casting continues for MGM’s RoboCop as Gary Oldman (pictured below; Dracula, The Unborn, Lawless, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises) has inked a deal to star opposite Joel Kinnaman in the upcoming remake, THR writes.
Jose Padilha is directing the film, which is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman.
Kinnaman (“The Killing”) is the title character, a cop named Alex Murphy who is brought back from the brink of death and turned into a cyborg police officer.
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.
While no start date has been set, the production is eyeing a shoot in Toronto and has a tentative release date of August 9, 2013.
