Gary Oldman signs up for RoboCop

Gary Oldman Joining MGM's 'Robocop' Remake

Gary Oldman has inked a deal to star opposite Joel Kinnaman in MGM’s remake of Robocop.

Jose Padilha is directing the film, which is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman.

Kinnaman (The Killing) plays the title character, a cop named Alex Murphy who is brought back from the brink of death and turned into a cyborg police officer.

Oldman will play Norton, 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.

The production is eyeing a September shoot in Toronto and has a tentative release date of summer 2013.

Also the beginning of the film where ED-209 shoots the little kid for holding a knife for two seconds is so stupid.

Completely unrealistic, even given the movie's techno-fantasy nature.

Also, this. Nice try you ****ing idiots.

The political resonances of the remake, by contrast—a half-hearted bid to achieve topicality by connecting the story to U.S. use of drones—is self-evidently contrived.

(The fact that drones aren’t robots and robots aren’t drones is a problem the film barely even tries to paper over.)

The original RoboCop was a classic revenge film with a hero you wanted to root for.

This new shit was a hollow imitation. Sure looked cool, though!
The original was rife with political and social commentary. It was just made up to look like a classic revenge film.

Sure. It was still executed incredibly well.

The remake is trash.

Jk. The story is weak and their wasn't as much action as you would hope, but it's worth a look if you don't have anything better to do.

It's worth seeing if you enjoyed the original RoboCop.

To kind of see how they can take an awesome movie and completely butcher the concept.

A true RoboCop remake cannot exist in this world.

I suppose that's a good thing.

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night? If you didn’t make curfew, raise your hand.” All of us that broke curfew kept our hands down — except B-Rush. He’d raise his hand and tell on himself. Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

I went into watching it think it would be terrible, but I had time to kill and figured why not. While the start of the movie was pretty terrible, I really enjoyed the actual bits involving Robocop. Overall maybe a 5.5 on a scale of ten, and I'm not sad I saw it.
