Jose Padilha's reboot of RoboCop looks to have found its lead as Deadline reports that Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing," Snabba Cash) has been offered the role of Officer Alex Murphy (played in the original by Peter Weller).
UPDATE: Deadline is confirming their earlier report, saying that Kinnaman has accepted the deal to play Alex Murphy in the RoboCop remake for MGM.
