MGM knows who they want for Robocop. Deadline New York brings word the studio has put an offer out to Joel Kinnaman. Who is this Kinnaman guy you may ask? He’s from AMC’s The Killing and can be seen in theatres right now in Safe House.
The reboot of Robobcop has had a bit of a struggle getting into production. Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct, but that fell through and now we have Elite Squad‘s Jose Padilha on board. It seems like it might just happen this time; whether or not that’s a good thing is yet to be seen.
What do you think of Kinnaman? I haven’t seen The Killing or Safe House so I can’t really form an opinion.
