RoboCop / Joel Kinnaman

Briefly: Towards the end of last month, reports surfaced that "The Killing" star Joel Kinnaman had been offered the lead role in Jose Padilha's remake of RoboCop at MGM. Now Deadline has word that MGM has closed the deal and Kinnaman will officially take the role that Peter Weller originally played in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven film. Kinnaman currently has a supporting role in Safe House with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington, but his turn on the aforementioned AMC drama series has really been turning some heads. This role will certainly launch his career even further. Stay tuned for more info as the project develops.

    Along with Jose Padilha, this could be very interesting. The Elite Squad films were both excellent, and a less well known, up and coming, actor could provide some good surprises

    A mistake. Not the actor. The remake.

      I kind of agree with you on this.  Part of me would really like to see this reboot/remake they are making.  The other part of me is screaming for this project to never see completion.  It's like the Starship Troopers remake they want to do.  Just leave these films alone and hire someone with some talent that can make a film as unique and memorable as films were back in the day.  Boy do I feel old saying that hahahaha
