Abbie Cornish set for Robocop reboot?

June 11th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We really hate to admit it but this Jose Padilha Robocop reboot is really shaping up nicely…

The latest to join the cast is Abbie Cornish, perhaps best known for her work in Zack Snyder’s Suckerpunch, as Alex Murphy’s wife. We assume Robo will still be called Alex Murphy, but at this stage we’re not sure yet.
Cornish’s character will be Robo’s last remaining link to the world he knew before he became a machine.
Cornish will join Joel Kinnaman as Robocop and the movie will also feature Gary Oldman (read our story here) and Samuel L Jackson (and again here).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
