RoboCop in video: From the silver screen to Sega Mega Drive

RoboCop in video: From the silver screen to Sega Mega Drive
Detroit's silver-plated cop returns to the big screen this week rebooted with a sleek black suit and The Killing's Joel Kinnaman on leading man duties. Though Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original is the most well-known incarnation of the character, he stretches far beyond movies into TV, video games and comic books.

Digital Spy takes a look back through the RoboCop video archives below...

RoboCop (1987)

With a B-movie premise, a relatively tight budget and a director in Paul Verhoeven who'd never made a movie in Hollywood before, the odds were stacked against the original RoboCop from the start. However, Verhoeven and writers Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner managed to inject the film with great action, memorable one-liners and a cutting satirical edge that commented on American culture. We'd buy that for a dollar!

RoboCop: The Animated Series (1988)

Let's face it, RoboCop is a seriously cool character that appeals to a

Joel Kinnaman Confirmed to Star in MGM’s RoboCop Reboot

MGM has closed a deal with “The Killing” star Joel Kinnaman to star in RoboCop, a remake of the 1987 original and a reboot of the crime thriller series.

Deadline first reported the Swedish actor was offered the role two weeks ago and broke the confirmation Saturday morning. It goes without saying, but this is a major career boost for Kinnaman, who starred in Swedish hits like Snabba Cash and the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo before crossing over to Hollywood. The second season of AMC’s “The Killing” premieres on April 1.

Michael Fassbender and Russell Crowe were both erroneously rumored for the role.

Kinnaman is the fourth actor to play RoboCop on screen, following in the footsteps of Peter Weller, Robert John Burke (RoboCop 3), Richard Eden (a shortlived Canadian TV series) and Page Fletcher (“RoboCop: Alpha Commando” miniseries).

Joel Kinnaman Is Officially Your New 'RoboCop'

Joining the ranks of Peter Weller, Robert John Burke ("RoboCop 3"), Richard Eden (the shortlived Canadian TV series), David Sobolov (the animated series "RoboCop: Alpha Commando") and Page Fletcher (the mini-series "RoboCop: Prime Directives"), Joel Kinnaman is now the latest actor to put on the metal helmet as Deadline confirms he will be the next RoboCop in the upcoming reboot.

It was just over a week ago that an offer was floated to the "Snabba Cash," "Safe House" and "The Killing" star and he has signed on the dotted line, marking his first big Hollywood tentpole. It's not the first time Kinnaman has flirted with a major studio project as Steven Soderbergh eyed him for his aborted "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." while David Dobkin had cast him in "Arthur & Lancelot" before Warner Bros. pulled the plug. But this project looks to be on more solid ground, with MGM developing this for the past little while,

Rhys Ifans Re-team with Daniel Craig in James Bond 23

Rhys Ifans, known for his portrayal of character Jed Parry in Enduring Love (Daniel Craig’s stalker) who will appear as Dr. Curt Connors The Lizard in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man has been also cast in a new James Bond film, in an unknown role.

A source close to Telegraph’s Richard Eden, said:

Ifans will appear in the film, as well as Javier Bardem, who will play the baddie… Much of the filming will take place in South Africa.”

Bond producers also have yet to make the official announcement for Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes that have recently been rumored to have roles in the iconic movie. Bardem is anticipated to play the villain, while Harris is said to be taking on the role of Miss Moneypenny and Fiennes is seen to be a second villain.

It was confirmed that screenwriter Patrick Marber (Closer) came on

New 'Spider-Man' Villain Cast in 'James Bond 23'?

Rhys Ifans, who will star in Roland Emmerich's Shakespeare conspiracy feature Anonymous later this year, a role that reportedly won him the villainous role as The Lizard in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, is now reportedly set to join the cast of director Sam Mendes' as-yet-untitled James Bond 23.

A source tells The Telegraph's Richard Eden, "Ifans will appear in the film, as well as Javier Bardem, who will play the baddie... Much of the filming will take place in South Africa."

Ifans starred alongside Daniel Craig, who will once again return to play James Bond, in Roger Michell's Enduring Love in which the two actors kiss and is quoted by The Telegraph saying, "I spent the whole shoot winding up Dan Craig saying, 'Only four days to go now, Dan, darling, before our snogging scene.' Even now, after two Bonds, Dan still maintains that
