The last we hard on Jose Padilha’s Robocop remake was that the release date had been pushed back from August this year, to February 7th 2014. Now we finally have something new to report on the remake, we have a small amount of set photos and a short video to share with you.
The photos are much like we’ve seen before, with Joel Kinnaman walking around in his Robocop outfit, you know, the new black one which looks like a cross between Batman and Street Hawk. Probably the newest thing to see in these images are Robocops gun, which certainly looks impressive. There is also a very short video of Robocop driving down a street on his bike, check out the goods below.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, with Abbie Cornish playing his wife Ellen, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox, the man who dispenses the military training to Robocop, Michael Keaton will play Raymond Sellars, and Samuel L.
