New photos have leaked from the set of Jose Padilha‘s RoboCop remake, and they show that the cyborg police officer has a new set of wheels. The motorcycle in the images looks nifty and futuristic. It’s also nice when heroes can get their vehicles to resemble their outfit. Imagine a future where everyone’s car was a reflection of their daily attire. In the comments section, please tell me the automobile-equivalent of a t-shirt and jeans.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Jackie Earle Haley. RoboCop opens August 9, 2013. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial images.]
Here’s the official synopsis for RoboCop:
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.
