The Internet is full of rumors flying every which way. One never knows whats real, whats probably a joke, or what just might be someone’s pipe dream.
Last week that Internet began circulating, or perhaps perculating might be a better word, that Russel Crowe was in the mix to possibly star as Officer Alex Murphy in the forever-in-development reboot of RoboCop. Crowe himself has addressed the question, his answer looks pretty definitive to this NerdBastard:
Well, that’s gonna disappoint some, Crowe would probably do a good job as Murphy. We’ll still get our Crowe fix when we see him as Superman’s biological father Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel next year, and Crowe did acknowledge that he is considering the title role in director Darren Aronofsky’s epic retelling of the story of Noah.
Meanwhile, RoboCop director Jose Padilha is still on the hunt for his Murphy. With Crowe out of the picture, who do you think should be the new RoboCop?
