In related news, there's been a mild controversy over the fact that RoboCop, which is set in Detroit, is shooting in Toronto. Well, now, it has been announced that the cast and crew are heading to Michigan after all, having been approved for $294,000 in incentives on $1 million in anticipated in-state spending. Like the original, parts of the movie, mostly exterior shots, will actually be shot in Detroit, with the rest of this rebooted adventure continuing to film in Canada.
RoboCop comes to theaters February 7th, 2014 and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Keaton, Jay Baruchel, Michael K. Williams. The film is directed by José Padilha.
