Gary Oldman is looking to join José Padilha‘s RoboCop remake, which is slowly forming after some struggles finding a director. Joel Kinnaman stars in this retelling of the Paul Verhoeven classic that almost feels unfilmable.
If Oldman takes the role he’ll be playing a character that was once rumored for Edward Norton. A brief description below:
The scientist who creates Robocop and finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.
RoboCop is set to open on August 9th, 2013.
