Production is still filming in Toronto for the Jose Padilha reboot of ‘Robocop’. Recently photos of the ‘Robocop’ suit were leaked online and now we see that Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) not only gets a whole new makeover but also a nice new ride!
As most rides go, this doesn’t seem too impressive for something that is supposed to be from the future so I’m assuming there will be some major CGI going on in post-production. While I really enjoyed the original ‘Robocop’, the jury is still out on this one. For some reason, seeing Robocop on the Robo-cycle makes me think of ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘.
While Padilha must be very happy that this project is finally in front of the cameras, the studio threw another wrench in the making of the film and has pushed back the release date. Originally, ‘Robocop’ was to be in theaters on August 9, 2013, but Sony decided that they wanted to release ‘Elysium’ at a later date and moved it from its initial release date of March 1, 2013 to August 9, 2013 in hopes for a wider platform. That meant that ‘Robocop’ would have to be moved. So they decided to give the film a February 7, 2014 which would allow it to have more time in the post-production process.
Whether more time would make ‘Robocop’ a better movie is still yet to be seen but you can at least check out the latest photos from the outside location shoot below.
So what do you think of ‘Robocop’s’ ride?
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer.
