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."
