Michael Keaton replaces Hugh Laurie in Robocop

4:00 PM on 08.30.2012 // Maxwell Roahrig

In what's hopefully the last piece of the casting puzzle for Robocop, Michael Keaton will be replacing Hugh Laurie as the CEO of OmniCorp, the villainous corporation that builds the titular robotic man-cop. No word on what led to Laurie's departure, but it's good to see a great actor like Keaton join the all-star cast.

At this point, I'm just happy all of the casting is done. Reportedly, the film is starting to shoot next month to make its August 9, 2013 release date. And when that happens, expect my Robocop fanaticism to reach an all-time high. I'm sorry in advance.
