MGM released the first trailer for the “Robocop” remake and I’m actually kind of impressed with it! I was skeptical of the remake but now that I’ve seen the trailer, I guess I’ll have a positive opinion for it. Joel Kinnaman is the new Robocop. The film also stars Sam L. Jackson and Gary Oldman. I like the new Robocop armor as well.
While the remake does look like a good one, it still won’t top the original with Peter Weller. The original is an essential classic. The original is one of my favorite films of all time.
The casting for JJ Abrams, “Star Trek” sequel just got even more interesting! First Benicio Del Torro and actress, Alice Eve are both in talks of starring. Here’s the next surprising casting. I’m sure you’ve all seen the Paul Verhoeven epic sci-fi action flick, “Robocop”, starring Peter Weller. Well Peter just got casted for an un-named role in JJ’s “Star Trek” sequel. They don’t even say whether he’s playing a villain or a hero.
More on the story, here.
Nice! I loved the first, Robocop, movie. Just so you know, Peter has never retired from acting, he’s still working after all this time. He’s just been doing other movies and TV shows over the years. I remember seeing Peter in a role for “Dexter – Season 5”, he was a character named, Stan Liddy.
As for what character that Peter could be playing in “Star Trek”, my guess is that it could be, John Frederick Paxton, in which he played for in two episodes of the TV show, “Star Trek: Enterprise”.
