Gary Oldman Joins 'ROBOCOP' Remake

HeatVision reports that Gary Oldman has joined the cast of MGM's remake of Robocop. Oldman will play a scientist who turned fallen cop Alex Murphy played by Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash 1-2, The Killing) into the heroic cyborg. It's an interesting paring as the two had been linked for Arthur And Lancelot before Warner Bros. put it on hold. Gary will end his run as Jim Gordon this summer in The Dark Knight Rises. I'll be curious to see if he can help the credibility of this reboot even with a talented director like Jose Padilha (Elite Squad 1-2) behind the camera. Some other possible additions for the remake had included Edward Norton (Bourne Legacy, Incredible Hulk), a pre-Iron Man 3 Rebecca Hall (Town, Prestige) and Gael Garcia Bernal.
