How Michael Keaton will look like as the lead villain in Jose Padilha's "RoboCop" remake has been uncovered in a latest on-set photo of the reboot film. Taken during a recent filming session at the University of Toronto, the picture sees Keaton being escorted by two ladies and cops when arriving on the set which was transformed into OmniCorp building.
Keaton stars as Raymond Sellars, the evil CEO of OmniCorp. The company itself is the one which creates RoboCop for its own gain. In some other on-set photos, Joel Kinnaman is seen clad in his full cyborg armor while standing behind a glass wall in what seems to be the OmniCorp building.
There are additionally new images that give first look at Abbie Cornish as Ryan Murphy's wife Ellen and Michael Kenneth Williams as his trusted partner Lewis. They are all seen shooting a scene in the same building with Kinnaman.
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.
