Cornish talks RoboCop, takes Klondike

Cornish talks RoboCop, takes Klondike

Abbie Cornish, the Aussie beauty who survived “One Perfect Day” and “Horseplay” only to make it in Hollywood (winning starring spots in films like “Stop-Loss” and “Elizabeth : The Golden Age”), has a couple of big projects on the way.

First, she’s playing the robot’s wife – Ellen Murphy, widow of Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – in the remake of “RoboCop”.

She spoke briefly to VH1 about being part of the ambitious project.

“It’s gonna be a massively kick-ass film,” says Cornish. “…I actually have a voicemail message from Jose Padilha, the director. He says in the message, ‘I don’t think we’ve got a great movie. I think we’ve got a classic.'”

“RoboCop” should be a decent remake, if the cast is anything to go by – Samuel L.Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Jackie Earle Haley, among those in it.

Meanwhile, Deadline says Cornish has joined the cast of a new TV mini-series called “Klondike”, which “tells the story of six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town in the remote Klondike.”

Cornish joins Tim Blake Nelson, Ian Hart and Johnny Simmons, among others, in the Discovery Channel project.
