Hugh Laurie is the Villain in "RoboCop" Remake

Posted: June 13th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hugh Laurie is the Villain in "RoboCop" RemakeSubmit Comment
"House" star Hugh Laurie is in negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming "RoboCop" remake. He'll play the villainous CEO of Omni Corp, which creates the title character for its own gain.

Gary Oldman is set to co-star as the scientist who creates RoboCop (Joel Kinnaman), while Samuel L. Jackson has also signed on to play a patriotic media mogul. Abbie Cornish will play his conflicted wife, a role described as a female lead, which hints that the film may not have Alex Murphy's former partner Anne Lewis.

The new movie is directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) and will begin shooting this summer for an August 9th, 2013 release.

House is the bad guy? Okay, now I'm interested.

Although Abbie Cornish is WAY to young to play Sam Jacksons wife.

Robocops wife Taco..

And Hugh Laurie is god on TV. But 'Stuart little' , 'Flight of ...' and 'Street Kings'?? he doesn't light up the movie screen really. I'd love to see him kick ass for cinema, but it just hasn't happened yet.

But Hugh Laurie is TV god..

Hugh Laurie can be very sarcastic, caustic and a sadist even and therefore he'll be a great vilain. Good choice.

This is a weak cast so far not sounding too good

Hugh Laurie as the main villain in the Robocop remake?

That's something I am not sure about but still this cast keeps on getting better and better.

First Oldman, then L. Jackson and now this.

I hope Peter Weller makes a cameo.

Hmmm, intriguing. Have a hard time seeing Laurie in villain-mode, but it's always nice to see actors branch out.

Good choice. Lets just hope Padilla can do a film Americans want to watch, because that Elite Squad sh*t isn't apt for us Yanks.

Nothing beats the 1987 original Robocop movie, but because Hugh Laurie being casted as the evil CEO of the Omni Corp, I feel like giving this remake a chance. What do you think guys?
