The remake of Robocop has been on quite the fast track lately. First, there was the rumor and confirmation that The Killing star Joel Kinnaman had been cast in the lead role, effectively taking over the franchise from Peter Weller. Then, there was the news that Sony Pictures will be distributing the film. Now, with a distributor in hand, it seems the next logical step has been made, as Sony Pictures has announced just when the film will hit theaters.

Robocop has been announced for a release next summer on August 9th, 2013. This closely resembles the original film’s summer release date of July 17th, proving itself as a summer blockbuster, with the original sequel being released in June as well.

All that’s currently known about the film is that Kinnaman will be portraying Alex Murphy, a Detroit cop who is transformed into the eponymous law enforcement officer. The film is set to be directed by Jose Padilha, while the script was written by Josh Zetumer. MGM will produce along with Strike Entertainment.

There is currently no word when production will begin, but judging by the film’s new release date, the remake will get to filming this summer.

If you need to have your fix of the film’s star, Joel Kinnaman will return to his television series The Killing for its second season when it premieres April 1st at 8PM, only on AMC. [xx]
