Joel Kinnaman: 'Robocop' Offer!

Joel Kinnaman, from the AMC series The Killing, has been offered the title role in the Robocop reboot, according to Deadline. (In the original movie, Peter Weller played Officer Alex Murphy/Robocop.)

“In the first RoboCop when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop.” director Jose Padilha told ComingSoon. “My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?”

We can’t wait to watch this film, we love Robocop!

    …Sounds interesting but i’m not really interested in seeing another Robocop film.

  • lold

    Joel is an incredible actor. He would definitely be up for the challenge.

    Go Joel!!

  • Question

    Is this Alexander Skarsgard’s friend?

  • Prof. Nelly Fang Nielsen

    No. More like friends with his brother Gustav. Rumor is that Alex is very jealous of Joel. That Joel gets better work than him. I say it’s because Joel is more talented than Alex.

    Where did you hear this rumor Alex is jealous of Joel? I’ve not heard that one Hmm I don’t think so.

  • Prof. Nelly Fang Nielsen

    Not a rumor. It ‘s a fact.

  • oh oh

    well, Alex spent 6 years in USA since he got an important role and Joel has just arrived and has a succesful tv serie and he’d participated in 2 big hollywood films….it’s hurts!!!!

    I know Alexander and Joel did the Hammarby spot together… I mean, two Swedish guys doing great in Hollywood? No brainer. But when I heard Joel got Robocop, when Alex hasn’t really had any huge breakthroughs on the big screen, plus all the buzz around “The Killing,” I wondered if Alex would be jealous. I love them both, but I JUST said to someone earlier… “I wonder if Alex is mad that Joel is stealing all his Swedish thunder.” I wish both of these fantastic, great looking actors, long careers.
