Kinnaman confirmed as RoboCop

March 4th, 2012 by Big Phil Comments

Joel Kinnaman is now finally confirmed to star in the remake of RoboCop. Joel, who is best known for his role in The Killing, will play Officer Alex Murphy. Rumours about Joel being cast have been circulated for over a week, but thankfully he has now signed on the dotted line.

Murphy, who was previously played by Peter Weller in the original and its first sequel, was brutally gunned down and left for dead before being robo-fied.

We at FTN find this an interesting cast choice as Joel is not a big name A-Lister and this could mean that the studio is wanting to focus more on the action and character of Robocop rather than the “actor in the suit”.

More updates will follow when production finally roles out!
