Gary Oldman has always had a thing for great supporting roles, and while his career was heavy on villainous roles, ever since Batman Begins he has started to play a broader type of characters.
While we will be seeing him as Commissioner James Gordon, maybe for the last time, in The Dark Knight Rises, he is lining up a few projects for the following years, the most recent of them being director Jose Padilha’s remake of RoboCop.
Gary Oldman will play a scientist responsible for the transformation of police officer Alex Murphy into a law enforcer cyborg, and who is torn between his corporate responsibilities and the humanity of his actions in bringing Murphy back from the dead.
Filming on the film, which stars Joel Kinnaman as Murphy/RoboCop, will begin sometime this year for a 2013 release. Are you excited about this remake?
