A lot has been said about the rebooted future of law-enforcement — some good, some bad, some — oh, who are we kidding, it’s mostly been bad. Except for the film’s A-list cast and its gritty director Jose Padilha, everything that’s been whispered about the upcoming “Robocop” reboot hasn’t exactly been nice and rosy. These set images, which gives you your first gander at Robocop himself, may or may not dispel those nasty thoughts.
As always with set stuff…
POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW
Now that you’ve been warned, check out what “The Killing” star Joel Kinnaman looks like in full Robocop costume on the set of the upcoming reboot. I’m not sure if that’s the full extent of his “costume”, more like the original layer that will be getting some spiffy upgrades courtesy of CGI.
Of course, I could be wrong.
“Robocop” will star Kinnaman as a cop in future Detroit who gets blown away by bad guys, and is eventually resurrected as Robocop, a half-man, half-cyborg cop by the evil OmniCorp corporation. As with the original films, Robocop will spend just as much time battling street-level scum as he does boardroom scum in three-piece suits.
The film will co-star Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
Robo cops the streets in the Summer of 2013.
