Abbie Cornish in ‘Robocop’ Remake? I’d Buy That for a Dollar!


MGM is courting Abbie Cornish to play Alex Murphy’s wife in director Jose Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic Robocop. So far the cast includes¬†“The Killing’s”¬†Joel Kinnaman as Robocop, Gary Oldman as his creator and Sam Jackson as a media mogul.

Robocop tells the story of a veteran police officer named Alex Murphy who is brutally gang-murdered by street thugs only to be brought back to life as a cyborg crime fighter for the force. Things get complicated when he starts to remember his previous life.

Cornish is coming of Neil Burger’s mind-bending, dope-thriller Limitless and Zack Snyder’s criminally underrated girl-powered, fantasy-actioner Sucker Punch. She also voiced the character of Otulissa in Snyder’s animated feature Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.
