What Will Joel Kinnaman's Robocop Look like?

Joel Kinnaman graced the red carpet last night to promote The Killing’s season 2 premiere, which airs on AMC Sunday, April 1. The actor also took the time to talk about some of the details involving Robocop’s complete costume redesign. Kinnaman, who will play the cop cyborg from the 80’s classic, had this to say:

“There’s a lot of neuroscience now raising the question, ‘Is all the intelligence in the human body in the brain? And they’re finding out that, no, it’s not like that. The body has intelligence itself, and we’re much more of an organic creature in that way. It’s not a control tower that does everything.”

The actor adds, “They’re still working on the suit and how it’s going to look, but the visor is going to be see-through.”  With a smirk he continued,”You’re going to see his eyes… It’s not going to be jaw action.”

Director Jose Padilha had more questions than answers when asked about the movie:

“In the first RoboCop when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?”

Kinnaman mentioned that the humanity of Murphy is critically important and will be played up in his design of the Robocop suit.

RoboCop, which is written by Josh Zeturner and Nick Schenk, is set to be released on August 9, 2013.
