RoboCop is an upcoming 2014 American science fiction action film directed by José Padilha. It is a remake of the 1987 film of the same name, portraying the character's development into an officer transformed into a cyborg. The film stars Joel Kinnaman in the title role, with Gary Oldman as Dr. Robert Norton, Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, Abbie Cornish as Ellen Murphy, and Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox.
Screen Gems first announced a remake in 2005, but it was halted one year later. Darren Aronofsky and David Self were originally assigned to direct and write the film, respectively, for a tentative 2010 release. However, the film was delayed numerous times, and Padilha signed on in 2011. In March 2012, MGM announced a tentative 2013 release, but the film was pushed to 2014. The principal characters were cast from March to July 2012. Principal photography began in September 2012 in Toronto, with additional locations in Hamilton, and Detroit in the United States.
