"Michael Fassbender Robocop"Michael Fassbender is the top choice of the Brazilian director Jose Padhila, to play the lead role in the forthcoming remake movie of ‘Robocop’.

The ‘Elite Squad’ director Jose Padhila, is in Austin, Texas, the place he hosted the screenings of it’s sequel, with the title ‘Elite Squad 2: The Enemy Within’ at Fantastic Festival. However, he also gave some insights about the remake of ‘Robocop’, the original movie made by Paul Verhoeven in 1987. He also revealed that, he is already working on the project. Besides, he also revealed his views about the project in an interview with Brazilian TV Channel, Globo 1.

The director and writer, Jose said that, he would film ‘Robocop’ and he is in fact, working on the script of the movie, along with Joshua Zetumer. He also added that, they have been working on the script together, for past 15 days in Rio de Janeiro. He further said that, he would be traveling to Los Angeles on Friday, in order to discuss with MGM studio. Once the discussions are over, they will start the project with casting, picking the actors and expected to start the film in February or March.

The Brazilian director went on saying that, he could not share any more details, as it would be early to speak. However, he hinted about the kind of actors he want for the movie. He suggested that, he likes the ‘X-Men: First Class’ star Michael Fassbender and he would discuss with him. He also added that, there is the possibility of casting, other great actors, to play the role of Robocop. But, getting Fassbender onboard is not that easy, as he is busy with multiple projects.

The ‘Shame’ actor, Michael Fassbender has been locked with his schedules. He will feature in the upcoming movie ‘At Swim-Two-Birds’ directed by Brendan Gleeson, which would be his directorial debut. He could probably get a call to star in the sequel of ‘X-Men: First Class’. Jose Padhila feels that, Michael Fassbender would be perfect one, who could don the role of Alex Murphy/Robocop perfectly.
