Joel Kinnaman Confirmed For “Robocop”

MGM has closed a deal with “The Killing” star Joel Kinnaman to play the title role in Jose Padilha’s remake of “Robocop” for Strike Entertainment says Deadline.

Josh Zetumer wrote the script for the reboot which is said to drop the darkly comic satire of the original in favour of a grittier and more realistic tone. Eric Newman and Marc Abraham are producing.

Kinnaman, who worked with Padilha on the recent action thriller “Safe House”, would take over the role made famous by Peter Weller in the Paul Verhoeven-directed 1987 original.
