Abbie Cornish Offered Female Lead In ROBOCOP Remake
The Sucker Punch actress has been offered the role of Alex Murphy's wife in MGM's RoboCop remake, which also stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson.
The other day, we reported that Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel's The Avengers) was cast in MGM's upcoming remake of RoboCop, the classic sci-fi film starring Peter Weller. Now, via Deadline, we have another possible cast addition. The site reports that Abbie Cornish - seen in Sucker Punch and W.E. - has been offered the female lead in the remake, which will be directed by Jose Padilha. If negotiations go well, Cornish will play the wife of Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman, The Killing) who believes that she's a widow after Murphy almost dies (and is turned into the indestructible crime fighter known as RoboCop). Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight) is also set to play 'Norton', the creator of RoboCop. Production is expected to begin in September. Cornish can next be seen in The Seven Psychopaths, which will be released later this year.
RoboCop is set to hit theaters August 3rd, 2013.
