Jose Padilha Wants Michael Fassbender For Robocop
ScreenRant has caught wind of an interview where director Jose Padilha (Elite Squad 2) states his choice for the lead in his Robocop reboot is Michael Fassbender. It's a great decision considering how well the actor is doing commercially and critically at this point in his career. The only thing is that Fassbender is on every one's list recently being wanted for both WB's Akira and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Not to mention reprising the role of Magento in the X-Men First Class sequel which is likely to get fast-tracked by Fox. Personally I think he'd make a better Clarence Boddicker if that's the villain they're going with for the film.
