Clive Owen will take on corporate villain role in smart remake
There WILL be trouble. The 2013 remake of RoboCop is looking like one of the most exciting prospects of next year. And news has reached our ears that Clive Owen, the Closer star who nearly became Bond, will be filling in for Hugh Laurie, who has stepped down from the role of the evil corporate villain.
The House star was set to play one of the head creators of the cyborg police officer in the upcoming remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 sci-fi hit. But Laurie, who mastered his surly demeanour in his hit medical drama, has left the project. According to Deadline, Clive Owen is being lined up, proving that they definitely wanted a good old fashioned British villain for this one.
