Now that Batman has come to an end, Oscar-nominated actor Gary Oldman has signed up for the 'RoboCop' remake.
The British star will be starring opposite Joel Kinnaman in MGM's new version of the 1980s sci-fi classic, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
It's thought that Gary will be playing the scientist who brings RoboCop to life in the new flick that will be directed by Jose Padilha.
Reports suggest that the new script will be penned by Gran Torino writer Nick Schenk, and cameras will start rolling in Toronto in September ahead of its August release next year.
Sounds as if the British veteran will have a meaty role, as the new film will centre around Alex Murphy's shooting, and how he is resurrected as RoboCop.
“'RoboCop the first movie was fantastic, but even if there was no movie, the concept of 'RoboCop' is brilliant. First, because it lends itself to a lot of social criticism but also because it poses a question, 'When do you lose your humanity?'” Padhila has said.
"I have my take on it. And I can tell you this: In the first RoboCop when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you programme a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?"
Are you looking forward to the new 'RoboCop' movie...
