Sony Pictures has signed a deal to distribute MGM Studios' RoboCop remake, which recently landed The Killing star Joel Kinnaman as its lead actor.

The story follows Alex J. Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), a Detroit cop who was shot and left for dead in the line of duty. He is turned into the RoboCop, a half-man half-robot crime-fighting machine who is programmed to clean up the mean streets of Detroit. No other cast members have been announced yet, but this project seems to be on the fast track now, after landing Joel Kinnaman, so expect to hear about more roles filling up in the near future.

José Padilha is directing RoboCop from a screenplay by Joshua Zetumer, with Eric Newman and Marc Abraham producing. It isn't known when production will begin on RoboCop.

Sony Pictures will also distribute 21 Jump Street on March 16 and Skyfall on November 9 for MGM Studios.

RoboCop was released February 12th, 2014 and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel. The film is directed by José Padilha.
