Edward Norton and Sean Penn Cast in "RoboCop" Remake?

New postby Shakelford, J. Rusty » Sun Apr 15, 2012 2:07 am

Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") was recently cast as Alex Murphy aka RoboCop in the upcoming remake, which will be directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) and set to hit theaters on August 9th, 2013.

Apparently the plan all along has been to surround the the star with major Hollywood actors, because now comes word that Edward Norton, Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel), Rebecca Hall (The Town) and Sean Penn are in talks to join the film.

According to, Norton will fittingly play a character also by the name of Norton, who is a brilliant mastermind behind bringing RoboCop to life. Bernal would likely play Jack Lewis, Alex Murphy's handsome police partner who eventually begins a relationship with Murphy's former wife, to be played by Hall. Penn may end up in the role of Novack, a right-wing news reporter.

The original was really good, i enjoyed them all. I just hope they don't "modenise it" too much or you will lose to much.
