Looks like there won’t be a shortage of movies soon, as movie remakes continue to hit the theaters. Some of you have already been there for most, such as the Lone Ranger, with Johnny Depp, the soon to be released Carrie remake with Julianne Moore, The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio and the Evil Dead, just to name a few.
So what else can we expect? Robocop. Yep, that 1987, sci-fi action film with Peter Weller is the next to have its own remake.
For those who don’t remember the original it’s about a veteran police officer, who then gets killed in the line of duty, and is used as an experiment for a new procedure.
The updated version starts us off in the year 2028 and OmniCorp, the leaders in robotics, have been supplying the military with drones. Since they’ve been so successful and have made billions off of it, they want to bring that technology closer to home. When police officer, Alex Murphy, played by Joel Kinnaman, is injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp uses that chance to put their project to the test.
The remake stars Joel Kinnaman in the title role, Gary Oldman as Dr. Dennett Norton, Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, Abbie Cornish as Clara Murphy, and Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox. The movie is schedule for a February 7, 2014 release.
