Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) is playing Robocop in the Jose Padilha directed film.
Oldman will play Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop and finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.
No matter what you think of a Robocop remake having Gary Oldman involved gives it a lot more credibility.
I just remembered Oldman was in Lost in Space.
