We informed you right here in this Blog back in September of 2012 that ASE was chosen once again by the movie industry to supply products to the set to help support their filming. In this case, we supplied a Hein Werner transmission jack to the set to aid them in servicing the vehicles that would take part in the film.
The Sony Pictures film is set to premier on February 12, 2014. You may have already seen ads for it on TV. It stars Michael Keaton, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson. If it’s anything like the SciFi original, which was shot back in the 1980’s starring Peter Weller, it will be a great film.
You may remember we helped provide products and equipment to many major Hollywood films in the past, including –
Give us some feedback on the movie whether you like it or not. Just let us know how it is.
Guess what we’ve been up to? You’ve seen us provide automotive equipment to many Hollywood movie sets, including –

Well our latest contribution to tinseltown is a pair of Hein Werner heavy duty, low profile transmission jacks. When the producers of the remake of the cult classic 80’s hit film RoboCop need some shop equipment, they knew who to come to. After all, MGM and Columbia Pictures came to us for many other previous big hits because they know they can count on us for reliable equipment. We have a reputation of supplying them with the finest products in the industry in a timely manner, and we offer the support they demand.
The production is actually taking place in Toronto, Canada by OCP Productions Ltd. The production just began in August and the film wont be completed until August of 2013. The cast includes some big Hollywood stars such as Gary Oldman, Samuel Jackson and Michael Keaton as the bad guy. The director is Jose Padilha. The original hit was extremely popular and starred Peter Weller.
Below is concept artwork of the potential character, but is not necessarily what he will look like in the film. It’s just too soon to have any details. But hey, we had to throw some kind of picture up there.
