Gary Oldman To Create “Robocop”

Gary Oldman will star opposite “The Killing” star Joel Kinnaman in Jose Padilha’s remake of “Robocop” at MGM says Heat Vision.

Kinnaman plays 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.

Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce. Shooting aims to kick off in September in Toronto for a Summer 2013 release.
