Laurie WON’T be in Robocop reboot

August 25th, 2012 by bash Comments

It was reported a few months ago via Variety that Hugh Laurie would be joining the Robocop remake as the main villain.

However, it seems that report may have been slightly off the mark.

Over the last 24 hours Variety’s Jeff Sneider tweeted this message: “MGM RUMOR #1: While he was never officially confirmed, sources telling Variety that HUGH LAURIE has ended talks to play villain in ROBOCOP.

“HUGH LAURIE definitely out of ROBOCOP reboot, not that he was ever “in.”

This latest news adds further woes to the remake after an image was released on Dark Horizons recently showing the supposed official look of our favourite Detroit law enforcer. You can see it in the next link but be warned, it is AWFUL! –

Joel Kinnaman stars in the Jose Padilha film. Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle and Michael Kenneth Williams co-star in the August 9, 2013 release.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
