“Why is America so Robophobic?”.
We admit it – we had our doubts when we first heard about a RoboCop Remake being made, considering how perfect the 1987 original was. When we heard names like Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton being attached, we knew they meant business.
Director José Padilha reboots the popular Franchise which centers around Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), a badly-wounded Cop who is transformed into Cyborg form to fight crime in a futuristic Detroit.
A lot is on the line for Sony Pictures, which spent a pretty penny on the Toronto-filmed Action Flick which just completed Reshoots last week, especially after a lackluster performance at the Box Office with the expensive Total Recall Reboot last year.
Cornish was spotted in Yorkville last week with her newly-adopted French-born Puppy, shopping for Goodies at My Pet Boutique, while she was in-town for four days, leaving this past Monday morning along with her fellow Castmates.
A brand new Trailer for RoboCop has just surfaced and I was floored completely by its incredible slickness!

Now this I’m super-excited about! Jackie Earle Haley is a true Survivor after having seen several highs and lows in his Career, which began back in the ’70s with his work in The Bad News Bears. After a lengthy absence, Haley resurfaced in winning form back in 2006, receiving an Oscar Nomination for his work in Little Children (one of my favourite Films of all time), alongside Kate Winslet and Patrick Wilson. In that Film he delivers a moving performance as a Child Molester fighting his own personal Demons in a struggle to integrate back into Society.
Haley has been spotted in-and-around Toronto with his Wife Amelia Cruz, particularly enjoying the top-notch Cantonese Fare served at Dynasty Chinese Cuisine, as reported by Fans who spotted him there twice this week alone. He currently is at-work on the Reboot of RoboCop filming here with the likes of Joel Kinnaman (spotted here), Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and more.
In addition to having been seen in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows earlier this year, he next can be seen in Oscar Bait Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, which opens in theatres November 16, 2012.
