Joel Kinnaman talks RoboCop

Joel Kinnaman talks RoboCop

Speaking of his upcoming role as the new ‘RoboCop’, Joel Kinnaman (“The Killing”) explains that his incarnation of the character – originated by Peter Weller in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven film – will be more “human”.

Speaking to MTV, the actor said the film’s revamped hero will be influenced by neuroscience.

“There’s a lot of neuroscience now raising the question, ‘Is all the intelligence in the human body in the brain?’ and they’re finding out that, no, it’s not like that. The body has intelligence itself, and we’re much more of an organic creature in that way. It’s not a control tower that does everything.”

The film sounds like it’ll be quite different from the original – for better or worse.

“It’s a re-imagination of it. There’s a lot of stuff from the original. There are some details and throwbacks, but this version is a much better acting piece, for Alex Murphy and especially when he is RoboCop. It’s much more challenging… [The helmet is] not going to be jaw action. They’re still working on the suit and how it’s going to look, but the visor is going to be see-through. You’re going to see his eyes.”

Jose Padhila is directing “RoboCop”.
