Michael Fassbender would be open to playing Robocop
The name that has been thrown out the most for the lead role in the ROBOCOP reboot is Chris Pine. The only thing is that Pine has yet to say anything on it. At least not that I've read anyway.
He also seems to be a favorite of reboot helmer Josť Padilha. Another name the director threw out during Fantastic Fest was Michael Fassbender. Then followed that suggestion up by saying, "He's a great actor but there are other great actors that I really love, that could also do it. I can give you other names if you like, like Chris Pine; there's several of them. But I haven't discussed this film with any actors."
So what are Fassbender's thoughts on all this? The actor had this to say, "It could be kind of fun. It could be kind of good to have a helmet that I could hide behind, for most of the film, too. That sounds kind of appealing." The actor has yet to see the script but would offer it a fair chance just like any other project that comes his way, "I'll take a look at the script and sit down with the director and have a conversation. It's not definitely like, "Oh, I've got to play RoboCop before I retire." I don't have that about anything. I don't go, 'I have to play the Dane one day, or Hamlet.' I don't really think like that. I just wait and see what comes up, and I'm always open to it. If I react to the script, then I'm up for anything."
Would you welcome this remake more with Fassbender?
