MGM Wants Tom Cruise Or Keanu Reeves’ Chin For ‘Robocop’ Reboot

Tuesday, April 12 by

MGM wasn’t kidding around when they decided to make a reboot on Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 classic, Robocop. They’ve attached big-name directors like Darren Aronofsky (who’s no longer doing it), and now they’re apparently looking at some pretty surprising names to play the quasi-superhero. Surprising because they’re such big names, that is. Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Keanu Reeves are all reportedly being approached to play Alex Murphy, who in a tragic series of events, is transformed into Robocop. Murphy, of course, was played by at unknown at the time, Peter Weller, but it looks like the studio is going in a different direction this time around.

Of course, whether they actually GET anymore famous to play Robocop is another matter entirely, given that the part requires you to basically hide every part of your face except your chin for the bulk of the movie. I guess Tom Cruise has kind of a recognizable chin, but the others? Couldn’t pick ‘em out of a chin line-up. And Depp would probably base his Robocop on Freddy Mercury or something. (MovieHole)

    Who wrote this? First, it was released in 1987, not ’83.

    And “Paul Weller”? Seriously?
