Hollywood just can't stay out of the 80s!
For those of you who fell in with RoboCop in 1987, think again before you quickly call this reboot a knock-off.
The new man inside the suit, Joel Kinnaman says he's a super fan of the original and wants to do it justice but he also revealed new deets on the 2013 version.
For starters, RoboCop will have a battle with his humanity. Kinnaman states that the new flick will tackle Alex Murphy's existential issues within his world. Plus, his visor will be see-through, so viewers can see his eyes.
Kinnaman says the following about the flick's new tone:

Okay, so U won't ACTUALLY see RoboCop in the next Star Trek movie…but U WILL see the actor who plays him!
We've just learned that Peter Weller, who played Alex Murphy/RoboCop in the classic action flick, will be joining JJ Abrams' Star Trek sequel in an as-of-yet-unidentified role.
Sorry for getting UR hopes up, Detroit, but it should still be exciting to see the RoboActor doing his thing with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and hopefully Benicio Del Toro as well!
…Can't wait for May 17, 2013!!!!!
