Abbie Cornish in talks to join Robocop

Looks like ROBOCOP won't be all grim visuals and great actors - some beauty could be joining the proceedings as well with Abbie Cornish (LIMITLESS) having been offered the role of Alex Murphy's wife. This would of course provide with her with a fairly meaty acting opportunity since she'll have to dela with both her husband's death and his subsequent resurrection at the hands of Gary Oldman's Norton.

Thankfully Cornish isn't just a (very) pretty face, as she managed to turn in some solid work with SUCKER PUNCH despite the awful script.  Hopefully taking this part will give her the recognition SUCKER PUNCH could have afforded her had it been a better movie.

Look for more casting news as the production start month of September draws closer.

Extra Tidbit: I have a feeling that the script by Nick Schenk (GRAN TORINO) is actually pretty damn good. Especially in light of Gary Oldman's participation - he just doesn't strike me as someone who'd sign onto shit at this stage in his life/career.

give us a Robpcop statue in Detroit!

This movie seems to get better and better! I don't understand all the hate for Sucker Punch though. I enjoyed it. What about it did people hate so much?

I like it as well, but it's not exactly a movie for everyone with the premise, video game-style action scenes and the over the top sexiness. It's definitely style over substance, which is fine for people like us but turned off a lot of others.

As much as I don't like the idea of ROBOCOP being remade (especially since Darren Aronofsky quit), I have to say the cast they're pulling together is giving me hope for it, after all. As far as SUCKER PUNCH goes, Abbie Cornish and Jena Malone were the only ones who made that piece of crap even somewhat bearable.

Abbie Cornish makes landing on her neck and suffering a spinal injury look good.

Abbie Cornish IS a pretty great actor, not just a hottie.

I'd normally agree, but didn't Oldman do that Red Riding Hood movie not too long ago. Never saw it, but I didn't hear anything good about it. Still, I'm optimistic about a Robocop reboot.

I was gonna say the same about The Unborn, but I think that was a favor for The Nolans though.
