Joel Kinnaman Offered Lead In Robocop Remake

Deadline reports that MGM has sent out an offer to Joel Kinnaman to play officer Alex Murphy who eventually becomes Robocop in the remake of the 1987 cult favorite. Kinnaman was originally going to play Lancelot in Warner Bros. Arthur And Lancelot before it was put on hold. He was also in the mix for the role of the Russian spy in WB's The Man From UNCLE when Steven Soderberg was involved. He's been slowly ramping up as an actor with a large role in AMC's The Killing and starring in the Swedish crime thriller Snabba Cash franchise. Joel also had supporting roles in box office smashes Safe House and David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The role had been linked to names like Michael Fassbender and Russell Crowe at one point.
