A couple of days ago we were presented with a rumor from Variety that Russel Crowe was being considered for the role of Alex Murphy in the up coming Robocop remake. While the rumor did not seem very likely there had to be some validity to it given the source. Crowe was asked on twitter by user @DRockDot if he was being courted for the role. He responded with just a plain "No".



Crowe also used twitter to address the Noah rumor as well telling MovieWebs twitter feed And I'm eyeing him(Darren Aronofsky) right back...Liam's eyeing both of us... and Paramount are eyeing us all, including you. Whole lot of eyeing.". You can take that at what you will if he was being sarcastic, serious, funny but it looks like he knows he is on the radar for the film. There has been No word yet on who might get the role of Alex Murphy/Robocop in the remake, but keep check CBM for the latest updates on both projects.

Good. Crowe's a great actor, but I don't see him as Robocop. Michael Fassbender, Patrick Wilson or Michael C. Hall are my picks.
Hope he plays Noah though.

Yeah Crowe rules... but not as Robocop

He would be much better choice as Noah

Crowe for the next bond....maybe

^^^Nah, Michael Fassbender for the next Bond. I know the dude is fan-casted in every role nowadays, but I think he'd be a perfect Bond.

Peter Weller will never be replaced!

Good. Crowe is a superb actor but he is not Robocop.

Adam Baldwin for new Robocop!!!

CILLIAN MURPHY would be a perfect choise!

Great wouldn't want to see him in this and hopefully they won't make the robo-part so updated that it loses the human part

At least he was nice enough to reply without his obligatory violence. Consider it a kindness.

@yossarian: You know who WOULD be good for the role of Murphy....................MICHAEL FASSBENDER!!!!!!!
Which 6 states are in the crosshairs?

Robocop is a nowhere property. Nothing new that can be done with it and there's no reason to go there...but, some guy in a studio thinks there may be some money in it. So they'll do a new one. It will make around 130 mil, and that will be that. Then that same guy will want to remake the Jeff Goldblum "Fly" movie, then maybe Thelma and Louise. He may even want to start a new Lethal Weapon series. What an innovative and creative guy he must be, to get all those fresh ideas.
