    Exclusive: Joel Kinnaman Says 'Robocop' Will Be Serious & Gritty But Also Contain A Satirical Edge

    Joel Kinnaman can shoot you from 135 yards now -- and possibly more on a good day. Not that he would use his newfound skills for that purpose, but the actor has been training with handguns for the "RoboCop" reboot, which requires a lot more action skills and gunplay than his role as a Seattle cop on...

    Abbie Cornish In Talks To Play Joel Kinnaman's Wife In 'Robocop' Remake

    Last year wasn't a great one for Australian actress Abbie Cornish. She's been high on our radars since Cate Shortland's great "Somersault" (which also introduced the world to Sam Worthington) in 2004, and looked as if she might break out to the big time with a great performance in Jane Campion's "Br...

    'True Romance' Reunion: Samuel L. Jackson Joins 'Robocop' Remake With Gary Oldman (And Joel Kinnaman)

    If you’re going to watch season 2 of The Killing – and based on tonight’s premiere I recommend you should - you just have to say “All is forgiven” about the season 1 finale, which pointedly did not tell us who killed Rosie Larsen. You will not find out tonight eith...

    'Zodiac' & 'Amazing Spider-Man' Scribe James Vanderbilt To Rewrite 'Robocop'; Sells Action Spec 'White House Down' To Sony

    The first films of screenwriter James Vanderbilt's career were not exactly indicators of great work to come. Killer tooth fairy horror "Darkness Calls?" Botched "Rashomon" riff "Basic"? Dwayne Johnson actioner "The Rundown"? (Which is actually good fun, bu...
