Joel Kinnaman will officially play the title role in MGM’s Robocop remake.
Kinnaman will inherit the role originally played by Peter Weller in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven film.
Kinnaman has captured the attention of Hollywood from his recent roles in the Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds triller SAFE HOUSE and in AMC’s controversial THE KILLING.
Kinnaman also starred in the critically acclaimed SNABBA CASH.
If you’re not familiar with Kinnaman you really should check out his work. This has the potential to be a breakout role for him. I expect him to nail the character and bring new life to what could be a blockbuster series.
