RoboCop Aims For Abbie Cornish
It’s a good thing Abbie Cornish got all that time dealing with robotic killers in Sucker Punch because if she signs on for RoboCop, she can fall back on some of that experience when it come to her on-screen marriage.
Deadline reports that director Jose Padilha and MGM have offered the actress the part of fallen cop Alex Murphy’s wife in the remake of the 1987 classic.
If she accepts, Cornish will join a cast that already includes Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy/Robocop, Gary Oldman as Robo’s creator and Samuel L. Jackson as media mogul Pat Novak. Filming is set to begin production in September for an Aug. 9, 2013, release.
