When the director was asked on Twitter about who he wants to cast as the iconic lead character in his upcoming RoboCop sequel, Blomkamp simply tweeted, "Peter Weller".

Neill Blomkamp, director of MGM's in development Robocop reboot film, has named his pick for who should take the role of Alex Murphy in his film: Peter Weller, the actor to originally hold the role.
