Isn.t it great whenever a director gets attached to a project, and the two seem tailor-made for one another? Martin Scorsese and The Departed, for instance, or Jose Padilha and the awkwardly titled book that sounds pretty similar to The Departed, The Brotherhoods: The True Story of Two Cops Who Murdered for the Mafia. Warner Bros. is currently in talks to make one of those serendipitous match-ups by signing José Padilha to direct The Brotherhoods, Variety reports. Padilha.s next effort, MGM.s highly anticipated Robocop remake, is still in its effects-driven post-production stage on the way to a February 7, 2014 release date. And while the quality of that project is still in question, Padilha.s excellence behind the camera is clear based on 2007.s Elite Squad, which is one of the grittiest action flicks out there, and its 2010 sequel Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, a more mature film than »
One might think an adaptation of one of the most popular racing video game franchises would come zooming into theaters as quickly as possible with its pedal to the metal . or with its fingers on the accelerator button, as it were . but Scott Waugh.s upcoming Need for Speed is playing it safe and taking the scenic route on the way to theaters. The film will no longer see a February 7, 2014 release, Deadline reports, and will instead go nationwide on March 14, 2014. With almost a year between now and then, one might wonder if the delay was caused by production problems or casting issues, but it.s really just steering clear of some stiff competition from two films that previously bullied their way to the same date. José Padilha.s upcoming Robocop reboot previously switched its release date from August 9, 2013 to its current February date, and Chris Miller and Phil Lord »
As the somewhat sleazy Homicide Detective Stephen Holder on The Killing, actor Joel Kinnaman plays a character who investigates death. For his next feature film role, he.ll be the one witnessing it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kinnaman is close to signing on for the Warner Bros. crime thriller All Nighter, which was formerly titled Run All Night after being titled All Nighter to begin with. He.ll play Liam Neeson.s son in the film, which will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a spec script written by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace). Beyond his TV work, the Swedish-born Kinnaman was most recently seen in the romantic comedy Lola Versus, as well as the crime drama Safe House with Denzel Washington. His next role will definitely test his leading male capabilities as he takes on the central role of John Murphy in José Padilha.s RoboCop reboot »

There are likely still many who have doubts about the upcoming RoboCop remake, starring Joel Kinnaman as Detroit cop Alex Murphy. Actress Abbie Cornish, who plays Alex's wife Ellen, recently praised director José Padilha's work, and believes the movie will become a "classic."
"It's gonna be a massively kick-ass film. I actually have a voicemail message from José Padilha, the director. He says in the message, 'I don't think we've got a great movie. I think we've got a classic.' It's pretty amazing. I was five when the movie came out, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I grew up with brothers, so we would replay that VHS over and over again. I think people are going to get a lot more than what they think they're going to the cinema for. It's not only entertaining, but it's got heart, and it's going to be a classic. »

It's been a while since we've seen anything cool from MGM's upcoming remake of RoboCop, directed by José Padilha (Elite Squad series) and starring Joel Kinnaman as Murphy, a Detroit police officer gunned down on the job who is resurrected as a crime fighting cyborg. Its well known that this reboot will feature a number of different robotic suits for Murphy as the RoboCop hardware is perfected by OmniCorp. We've seen Murphy's black S.W.A.T. armor. Now, we get a look at RoboCop's 1.0 armor, the Em-208, which is basically a human shaped drone minus Murphy's living tissue. The second photo gives us a look at Murphy's Combat Mode suit, which is capable of transforming into various vehicles, just like those other robots in disguise. Hurry and take a look, as MGM doesn't really want these pics out in the ether just yet. Basically they don't want to hear fans bitching »
