Batman Joins Robocop

Keaton Replaces Laurie

Michael Keaton is joining RoboCop, the MGM and Columbia Pictures reboot directed by Jose Padilha. He'll play the role Hugh Laurie was negotiating to take, until he dropped out late last week.

Keaton joins Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson in the film.

“Michael is the final addition to the amazing cast we have assembled for this film, and it is so great to have the last puzzle piece in place," Padilha said in a statement. "It is thrilling that everything has come together to bring this innovative new vision of RoboCop to life. We’ve got a great script, a great cast, some killer ED-209s, and I can’t wait to get Alex Murphy back on the streets."

 Wow! There's a blast from the past! Hopefully this will get him back into som sort of active career.  Jack Frost aside, I miss him!

 Keaton?  Wow, what has he been up to over the last decade?  He did an FBI miniseries not long ago.  Besides that, he was in White Noise, Herbie the Love Bug and Jack Frost.  I'd really rather see him do a comedy.  I think that is where his strength lies.  I mean, Batman was one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

Just saw a pic of the new Robocop. Looks like crap. No personality whatsoever.

Keaton hasn't exactly been just sitting at home.  He just isn't getting lead roles anymore.  He played the Captain in The Other Guys, and Ken in Toy Story 3.

Sorry guys, I can't buy into the remake at all. The first Robocop worked because there was nothing like it before. The sequels pretty much sucked, and this remake is no different.....just re-imagining what's already been done. No thanks! Peter Weller IS Murphy AND Robocop. Period!

 jimvo99 - just playing devil's advocate here - I remember thinking the pictures of the costume for "The Amazing Spiderman" looked like crap, but it turned out great on film.

 Just saw the pic myself...yeah, looks a little "meh", but I'll wait for the previews.  And I'll give this remake a shot...it's got great supporting cast.
