RoboCop Adds Gary Oldman

May 23, 2012


Gary Oldman has joined the cast of Jose Padilha's RoboCop, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. He'll play Norton, the scientist who invents the cyborg technology that brings Officer Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) back to life.

Norton will have to deal with the morality of saving Murphy's life and the demands of the company that he works for.

"In the first 'RoboCop' when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop," Padilha told ComingSoon.net in an interview late last year. "My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?"

Oldman was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his leading role in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and can be seen back on the big screen this summer in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.

RoboCop is set for release on August 9, 2013.
