The New ROBOCOP Will Be "More Human" - We Will See His Eyes This Time
Joel Kinnaman, who will play Murphy/Robocop in the upcoming reboot, revealed a few details to MTV that may upset some fans. It won't be just "jaw action" this time around, Robocop's peepers will be on display..
Fans of Paul Verhoeven's original have been wondering exactly how director José Padilha would go about rebooting the movie, and the character. I think many assumed the new Robocop wouldn't look too different from the big chrome headed lug we all remember. But according to actor Joel Kinnaman, who will take over the role from Peter Weller, we may be in for a suprise (shock?) there..
"'RoboCop' is going to be a lot more human. The first movie is one of my favorite movies. I love it. Of course, Verhoeven has that very special tone, and it’s not going to have that tone. It’s a re-imagination of it. There’s a lot of stuff from the original. There are some details and throwbacks, but this version is a much better acting piece... it's not going to be jaw action. They’re still working on the suit and how it’s going to look, but the visor is going to be see-through. You’re going to see his eyes."
Hmm, not sure how well that will go down. In the original movie the character did frequently appear without his helmet on, but only after he was fully aware of his true identity. I wonder how, or if, that side of the story will play a factor in this new version. How do you guys feel about this? For the full interview click the link below.
