Not For The First Time Michael Keaton Steps Into A Fantasy Reboot

robocop-teaser-posterWord hit yesterday that MICHAEL KEATON has signed on the dotted line to replace HUGH LAURIE as corporate mogul Raymond Sellers in the upcoming ROBOCOP reboot. A re-working of the 1987 PAUL VERHOEVEN cult classic, shooting is scheduled to begin next month for an August 2013 release.
Under the direction of JOSE PADILHA, KEATON will be joining the already announced cast that includes JOEL KINNEMAN, GARY OLDMAN and SAMUEL L. JACKSON.
The last time MICHAEL KEATON stepped into a comic-book reboot, it was to take the titular role in director TIM BURTON’S 1989 game-changing classic BATMAN and the 1992 follow-up BATMAN RETURNS. It was back then KEATON gave us his thoughts about stepping into the role and doing a “reboot” rather than a “sequel.” (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
