Directed by Jose Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Michael Keaton, head inside for a trip to 2029 where the RoboCop project has been rebooted. Shooting has just begun, yet there are already paparazzi photos from the set. The new RoboCop is all black, which makes me wonder, will there be more than one new robot?
“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.”
MGM and Sony will release in theaters August 9, 2013.
