The film takes place in Detroit's future and Omnicorp is a multinational conglomerate that is the exclusive company that's responsible for the manufacture of robot technology. For a while, they've been using their robots overseas to participate in military operations. Now, Omnicorp is making the leap by taking their technology into the home front under the preface of law enforcement. Alex Murphy, a police officer with the Detroit Police Department is heavily wounded in the line of duty and his wife signs papers to hand his body over to Omnicorp to combine his consciousness to that of a machine body.

The film is a remake of the 1987 "Robocop" that had starred Peter Weller as the robotic, gun toting character and now Kinnaman will be rebooted into the role. The new look to Robocop will be that of a tactical, black suit and the film also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle and Jay Baruchel.

"Robocop" is scheduled to be released Feb. 12.
