Production on the RoboCop remake is in full swing, shooting across Toronto, Canada as we speak. On Saturday, we got our first look at star Joel Kinnaman in his full RoboCop cyborg body suit. Now, we have more pictures from the set, which offer our first look at Abbie Cornish as Ellen Murphy, Alex Murphy's wife. We also get a look at a couple of futuristic police cars, two motorcycles, and a civilian automobile. Oh, and there are a couple of new shots featuring Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy without his face visor pulled down.
A couple of things about the photos in question. The suit is one of four that Joel Kinnaman will wear throughout the movie. The suit pictured here, and seen on Saturday, is the S.W.A.T. suit. Alex Murphy will don the more traditional silver, black, and red suit when he is protecting the streets as a beat officer. As mentioned by the actor in previous interviews, RoboCop's helmet is designed so that you will see his face. The pictures here are a good representation of what Joel Kinnaman will look like most of the time, as he will often have his visor up when not in combat.
One last thing...As this is a tale about Detroit and its futuristic police force, do any of you find it strange that they are shooting in Toronto, Canada? Especially knowing that Detroit offers plenty of tax incentives? And does RoboCop always have one flesh hand?
By request, these photos have been removed.
