Hugh Laurie will NOT be in Robocop remake… maybe Clive Owen?
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
That’s it folks, it’s final. Hugh Laurie is jumping ship and evacuating the Robo-reboot leaving the primary antagonist role wide open for the taking. What made him leave? Could be anything but reports going around the web state that many people are unpleased with the current script for the film. You can also thank Total Recall for some of that nostalgia killer. Anyway Laurie is out and apparently Clive Owen is being considered as a replacement.
I really wanted to see Laurie in the role so I’m pretty bummed about this. I won’t even let my mind picture Clive Owen in the role until someone gets him to sign that BINDING CONTRACT.
Back to the drawing board for the villain. Who can fit Laurie’s shoes?
