According to Deadline, director Jose Padilha has officially made the deal with actor Joel Kinnaman to play Alex Murphy in the upcoming reboot. Kinnaman was previously set to star in a King Arthur film entitled Arthur & Lancelot but that got put on hold. Kinnaman may be familiar to those who watch AMC's The Killing as the character Stephen Holder. I really don't know what to think of this casting as I'm not familiar with the guy but since Padilha is directing, I'm sure this movie will turn out pretty good. Do you guys feel the same way or am I just an idiotic wackjob? I mean sure he'll never replace Peter Weller but he has to be better than Robert John Burke right?
