That ol' whippersnapper Ed Douglas has landed two set photos from director José Padilha's RoboCop, a remake of the seminal 1987 sci-fi classic originally directed by Paul Verhoeven. These first two images offer us a pretty good view of Joel Kinnaman in his cyborg suit. The actor plays Officer Murphy, a cop who is left for dead after a bust gone bad, only to be brought back to life through the use of advanced robotics. The original suit worn by Peter Weller has become an iconic and instantly recognizable part of pop culture. This new black suit (one of a reported four different suits that will be used throughout the film), with its lifting face visor, on the other hand, looks like a background actor's costume from the recent Total Recall remake. Fans of the original movie will surely call blasphemy. Not sure what those new to this franchise will think. Please leave your comments below.
By request, these photos have been removed.
