Kinnaman Circling RoboCop Redux

February 25, 2012

The Killing star Joel Kinnaman has seemingly been offered the lead in the “RoboCop” reboot says Deadline.

Gran Torino screenwriter Nick Schenk was recently hired to pen a new draft of the script for director José Padilha. Last March Joshua Zetumer was hired to write the reboot of the RoboCop franchise that now aims to explore in detail a part of the story that Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 classic did not–Alex Murphy’s actual transition from man to machine.

Kinnaman makes an interesting choice to wear the metal first worn by Peter Weller and is someone that was not on my radar in terms of potentials

It’s been confirmed that new the film would be set in Detroit, where Verhoeven’s took place. Shooting hopes to kick off this Summer.
