‘RoboCop’ actress Aimee Garcia speaks out about film’s plot

'Dexter' actress reveals what is in store for her character

Actress Aimee Garcia has spoken out about the plot for the forthcoming RoboCop reboot and has revealed more information about her character.

Garcia, who stars in US TV show Dexter and will play a scientist called Kim in the flick, told the Chicago Tribune what Brazilian director Jose Padilha had in store for his remake of the much-loved cult franchise.

“Almost all my scenes are with Gary Oldman. It’s a dream come true. I play Kim. She’s a scientist and her and Gary Oldman help bring RoboCop to life,” she revealed.


“She has a Ph.D from MIT and is at the forefront of robotic chemistry and physics. This takes place in 2028. She’s a prodigy handpicked by Gary Oldman’s character to work on this first of its kind experiment.”

She went on to add: “I’ve watched more tech talks than I ever have in my life. I’ve learned so much about the brain. The technical things this girl has to say, I want to make sure I understand what each and everything is. She might be a little bit of a punk too.”

The new RoboCop has an estimated budget of $100 million (£61 million) – more than seven times the $13 million (£8 million) cost of the original film. The remake is scheduled for release on August 9, 2013. Joel Kinnaman has been cast in the title role, while Samuel L Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jennifer Ehle and Jackie Earle Haley have also all been cast in the film.
