Looks like MGM has started up the viral marketing for their upcoming “Robocop” reboot. First up is an “official website” for the film’s infamous OmniCorp, the corporation that builds Robocop and supplies a future Detroit with its various
money-making schemes protection products, including a sparkling new ED-209 enforcer. After all, a “Robocop” movie without OmniCorp is just not a “Robocop” movie, and it’s good to know that the folks behind the reboot recognize that.
Jose Padilha is directing the remake, which is scheduled for 2013. The film will star Joel Kinnaman (“The Killing”) as Alex Murphy aka Robocop, with Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, and Hugh Laurie also in the cast.
And oh, look, a sneak peek at OmniCorp’s “RC-2000″. Gee, I wonder what “RC” stands for…
