For a long time Jennifer Ehle found it difficult to escape the shadow of Pride & Prejudice, but she’s found fresh impetus thanks to the likes of The Ides Of March, The King’s Speech and Contagion. Now she’s in talks to join José Padilha’s remake of the 1987 action movie RoboCop.
The actress would play the role of Liz Kline, although absolutely nothing is known about the character at the moment. If she signs on she’ll stars alongside Joel Kinnaman, Jackie Earle Haley, Gary Oldman, Hugh Laurie, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson, working from a script by Joshua Zetumer.
It isn’t clear when the movie might shoot, but an August 9th, 2013 release date has already been set. (Source: Deadline)
