Jackie Earle Haley Joins Cast of Robocop Reboot

ImageJackie Earle Haley (better known to movie fans as Rorschach from the movie Watchmen), has been announced to be joining the cast of the new Robocop movie reboot. Haley will be joining Gary Oldman, Samuel Jackson, and Hugh Laurie in what is shaping up to be a pretty formidable roster of stars. Hayley is set to play Maddox, a character set to be instrumental in the military training of Robocop.

Not sure how much of the original plot and setting will remain but the story goes that…In the near future, Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin and unchecked crime. The mega-corporation Omni Consumer Products enters into a contract with the city to run the police force. OCP plans to destroy “Old Detroit” to replace it with the utopia of “Delta City”. Recognizing that human law enforcers are insufficient to stop the crime spree, OCP runs several programs to find robotic replacements. One program, the ED-209 enforcement droid, headed by senior president Dick Jones, malfunctions and kills a junior executive during its demonstration. As a result, the OCP Chairman opts for a cyborg program helmed by middle-ranking executive Bob Morton, named “RoboCop”.

It’s yet another film following in Hollywood’s trend of rebooting. Are you looking forward to it or no? Sound off in the comments!
