RoboCop handcuffs Jackie Earle Haley in Jose Padilha's remake

RoboCop, meet Freddy Krueger!

Deadline is reporting that Jackie Earle Haley (seen right) has been the latest to join MGM's star-studded ROBOCOP rehash. As you know, Joel Kinnaman will don the impenetrable metal, with Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish (below) and Hugh Laurie peppering the solid support. Word is Haley will play Maddox, the guy who dispenses the military training to Robocop.

From director Jose Padilha:

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex's life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

ROBOCOP patrols the block August 9, 2013.
