Joel Kinnaman is your new Robocop

Despite director Jose Padilha’s desire to see “The Fassbender” star in his Robocop remake, Deadline reports The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman has nabbed the lead role.

Kinnaman will star as a loyal police officer whose bullet-ridden body is scrapped in favour of an advanced robotic frame.

Russell Crowe was – very loosely – rumoured to be in contention for the part too.

Peter Weller starred as Officer James Murphy/Robocop in Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 classic.

Sony Pictures will distribute the MGM production.

Discuss: Does Kinnaman look the part?
