Gary Oldman has joined the cast of Jose Padilha's RoboCop & will play Norton, the scientist who creates the technology to bring Officer Alex Murphy [Joel Kinnaman] back to life. Norton will have to deal with the morality of saving Murphy's life & the demands of the corporation he works for. "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," Padilha recently told ComingSoon.net "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?" RoboCop hits theaters August 9th 2013.
