Joel Kinnaman MIGHT be Jose Padilha’s Robocop
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Jose Padilha has had this Robocop dilemma for quite a while. Numerous rumors have circulated the web with even Ruseel Crowe being rumored for the role at one point but today we’re getting something a name that’s little more… believable. Today we’re hearing that Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, Snabba Cash) has been offered the role of Office Alex Murphy.

This is pretty interesting news and I have to admit that Padilha’s doing good work in generating interest in his approach to the Robocop film. He’s certainly trying to differentiate from what was seen before and I wonder what new insight he may be able to provide in a well known franchise.
Not familiar with Joel Kinnaman’s films but he does have a good ‘look’ to be our next iron-clad law enforcer. What do you guys think about this possibility?
