The remake for the 1987 sci-fi classic "Robocop" has been in and out of development for the past couple of years. Directors have come and gone, along with actors, but today production is finally moving forward as "The Killing" actor Joel Kinnaman signs on to play this version's Alex Murphy in the upcoming remake. José Padilha ("Elite Squad: The Enemy Within") is directing based off the script written by Nick Schenk and Joshua Zetumer.

The first "Robocop" movie was a hit, spawning two more movies and one monstrous fan base. There's currently no set date for shooting. Kinnaman recently made his North American debut in theaters as he appeared in the sci-fi movie "The Darkest Hour."

    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
