CHECK IT OUT

Posted at May 31, 2012 by

In the never-ending wave of nostalgic remakes, the new Robocop is moving forward with production after casting Gary Oldman as Norton, the scientist who creates Robocop after bringing fatally-wounded police officer Alex Murphy back to life as the titular crime-busting cyborg-supercop. This latest casting comes on the heels of Oldman’s recent crowning as the highest-grossing film actor of all time, which makes sense considering he has both the Harry Potter and recent Batman franchises under his belt. Amazingly, Oldman managed to beat out other stars such as Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers, Star Wars) and Tom Hanks (Toy Story, a thousand other absolutely amazing movies).
