Gary Oldman joins Robocop


Guys, guys, guys. Guess what. Gary Oldman is in the Robocop remake. I know! Man, this movie is going to be incredible, I can just feel it. But the question remains: who will he play?

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Oldman will be playing Norton, the scientist tasked with creating Robocop. Running concurrent with the themes director Jose Padihla has in mind, Norton will constantly be evaluating the ethics behind creating the cyborg. Should Robocop know who he was and reach self-actualization? Or should he bend to the mighty will of OCP?

Also of note, production is looking to start shooting around September for release next August. Did I already mention that I can’t f*cking wait?
