torontosun.com – Netflix subscribers will likely be seeing a whole lot of Joel Kinnaman this weekend, as the fourth season of crime drama The Killing hits the streaming service. But the Swedish actor is known for more than just playing Detective Stephen Holder – he also portrayed Alex Murphy in the recent reboot of the ’80s hit RoboCop.

And in an interview with QMI Agency, Kinnaman revealed that he’d be interested in revisiting his RoboCop character in a sequel.

“I’d be surprised if we do another one, but I’d be down,” he says, and then laughs. “I have to, it’s in my contract.”

The 2014 reboot, directed by Jose Padilha, earned $242 million at the box office worldwide but received mixed reviews from critics.

“What made the original RoboCop so memorable was its violence, its satire, its depiction of this seedy, awful world rotting from within,” wrote QMI Agency’s Steve Tilley in his review this past winter. “What we have here is a competent if not exactly memorable sci-fi action movie. A movie that is RoboCop in name only.”

Aside from The Killing, Kinnaman says he’s got enough to keep him busy if the RoboCop franchise doesn’t continue.

“I’m developing three different projects that are in different stages of financing,” he says. “So right now I’m waiting for a start date. And I think I’ll probably start shooting around October or November.”

Kinnaman also stars in the upcoming mobster drama Run All Night with Liam Neeson.
