‘Robocop’ Star Joel Kinnaman Suits Up for a Remake of Paul Verhoeven’s Sci-Fi Classic (GALLERY)
Joel Kinnaman has some huge shoes to fill as the title character of Jose Padilha’s remake of Robocop, but recent photos reveal that they might not be quite as big as fans of the original remember.
According to new photos from the set, Kinnaman’s costume is decidedly more sleek and athletic than the one worn by Peter Weller in Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original.
Although some images fully reveal the actor’s face, other photos feature an updated version of the visor that became synonymous with the character.
Who else is involved with the ‘Robocop’ remake?
Kinnaman was spotted alongside actress Abbie Cornish, but they’re not the only two name actors to appear in Padilha’s film.
Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Clive Owen, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Keaton and Jennifer Ehle also star in the remake.
Dig into the gallery and see Kinnaman in action – or in between action scenes, anyway. Robocop is due in theaters August 9, 2013. Take a look back at the original in this 25th Anniversary clip.
