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.
