Fortunately, things are looking up these days: she won praise for her performance in Tribeca film "The Girl," has Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" on the way, and is signed on to both Brad Silberling's "An Ordinary Man" and Greg McLean's "Kill Me Three Times" in the near future. And now it looks like she's venturing back into tentpole territory, as Deadline report that she's in negotiations to play the wife of Joel Kinnaman's lead character in the remake of sci-fi actioner "Robocop."
Should the actress sign on, she'll join "The Killing" star Kinnaman as the mangled policeman-turned-cybernetic crimefighter, Gary Oldman as the scientist who creates her, and, most recently, Samuel L. Jackson as a TV mogul. "Elite Squad" helmer Jose Padilha is directing, which along with the impressive cast, means that, while we question the need for a remake, we're certainly a little more intrigued than we are for some of the other 80s action redos like "Total Recall" and "Highlander." Filming gets underway in the next few months, and it'll hit theaters on August 9th, 2013.
