is in line to star as RoboCop’s
creator Norton is the upcoming reboot according to reports. As a character, Norton is described as “torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.” Already signed up to the RoboCop reboot is Joel Kinnaman
who will take the lead. José Padilha
is also on board to direct.
Kinnaman recently said that he can’t imagine that the reboot will fall into the PG-13 category, so we have to keep the fingers crossed in that regard. A production start date has not been scheduled just yet, but there is plenty of time as RoboCop is not expected in cinemas until August 2013.
