Even More ‘RoboCop’ Casting, Photos From Behind-the-Scenes

There’s been quite a bit of RoboCop news the past few days, and there’s plenty more where that came from.

THR reports that “Dexter” actress Aimee Garcia has joined the cast of the Joel Kinnaman-starring remake of the 1980s sci-fi movie. She will play a scientist who helps put together the Robocop with his creator, played by Gary Oldman.

In addition, JustJared has landed more behind-the-scenes photos from the Jose Padilha-directed film, which began shooting in Toronto last week. They depict Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and a slew of futuristic police vehicles.

In theaters August 9, 2013, “In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

    cool! i love Joel so i’m rooting for this to be a success. i’m ok with the costume. maybe it’s an early (in the movie) version and he’ll end up with the chrome deal?

      I think they’re doing stages with his outfit in the movie. Like 3 stages and then the final product from what I’ve gathered from the web.

    Yes djblack it is an awesome looking suit but there is still no need for this remake! When robocop first came out back in the late 80′s I thought thats what the future would be like and we are not far from that future! There are illegal drugs everywhere now with constant wars! Hell now I wish robocop was real! Still dont like this remake idea, the original is perfect!

    I’m indifferent on the suit for now but it does come off as more of a suit and less of a cyborg. It also looks like OmniCorp outsourced their design department to a Stark Industries and Wayne Enterprises joint venture.

    What’s with the cloak?

    YOU’RE A WIZARD, MURPHY.

    He’s a guy in a plastic suit who looks like a guy in a plastic suit. In 87 they put Peter Weller in a plastic suit and made him look like a machine. That’s progress. Robocop is a perfect movie and the chances of the remake being better are zero so why bother.

    Why is he missing his chest? Definitely makes him look weak.

    Maybe it’s TJ Lazer
