And the new ROBOCOP is…

Drum roll please…. Joel Kinnaman.

Who?  He’s been in AMC’s The Killing, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the alien invasion flick The Darkest Hour.  Kinnamen will be taking over the legendary roll from Peter Weller (and to a lesser extent Richard Eden and Peter Fletcher).

This new Robocop film, being produced by MGM, is being directed by Jose Padilha.  Padilha is best known for his Brazillian films Elite Squad.  No word on what the story is about for the new film, but after years and years of seeing the character of Robocop reduced to self parody in the various films (part 3) TV series and mini series, it’ll be nice to hopefully see something close to the original again.  Question is, dose Kinnaman have the chops to play Detroit’s #1 cyborg cop?   He was decent in beating the crap out of Ryan Reynolds at the end of Safe House, but Weller’s performance is so iconic that it’ll be hard to replicate (and believe me, people have tried)
