SHOOT: Joel Kinnaman as ROBOCOP in Big Night Shoot at Vancouver Convention Centre
Joel Kinnaman is the fatally-wounded cop who returns to the force as a powerful cyborg RoboCop in a reboot of the 1980s/1990s movie franchise. Here he is doing additional scenes near the Olympic Cauldron yesterday. The night shoot drew a big crowd of spectators early on when his stunt double rode the RoboCop motorcycle down Thurlow to the Vancouver Convention Centre dressed as OmniCorp.
RoboCop continues to film at the Convention Centre tonight but production is expected to be inside. Filming here is part of the two-plus weeks of “reshoots” that RoboCop is doing in Vancouver to accomodate star Joel Kinnaman who is committed to filming the AMC series The Killing in this city. Principal photography for RoboCop was done last summer in Toronto and Detroit.
