It’s been a while since we’ve heard or seen anything from the set of the new RoboCop film. And while these new pictures are more just images of Swedish-American actor Joel Kinnaman in the re-imagined RoboCop armour, we’re still excited about what new elements director Jose Padilha is bringing to the rebooted franchise.
Filming is nearing completion in Vancouver, BC and will soon head to post-production to meet its February 7, 2014 release date. The film also stars Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel and Abbie Cornish.
In addition to the images, check out this new set video featuring RoboCop speeding along on his RoboCrotchRocket.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.
