This past weekend, we got our first look at one of the new RoboCop suit designs from behind-the-scenes photos from the set. We have some additional set photos, along with an updated teaser poster, and some casting news.
RoboCop is currently filming in Toronto, with Jose Padilha directing and a cast that includes Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy/RoboCop, along with Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Jay Baruchel. It’s now being reported that Dexter‘s Aimee Garcia is a late casting addition and will play the role of a scientist who helps put together RoboCop.
We’ve included the previously released set photos below, along with the new photos, and the teaser banner.
“In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.”
