Michael Fassbender wants to "take a look" at the 'RoboCop' script.

The 'Shame' actor has been linked to the role in a remake of the classic 1987 movie - starring Peter Weller as a former policeman who is murdered and re-created as a crime-fighting cyborg - by director Jose Padilha, and he reveals he would consider taking part in the film if he could see the story.

He said: "You know, I'm always open. I'll take a look at The Script and sit down with the director and have a conversation. It's not definitely like, 'Oh, I've got to play RoboCop before I retire.' I don't have that about anything. I don't go, 'I have to play the Dane one day, or Hamlet.' I don't really think like that. "I just wait and see what comes up, and I'm always open to it. If I React to the script, then I'm up for anything."

Michael - who has previously played Magneto in 'X-Men: First Class' - also reveals he would be keen to wear the iconic outfit worn by the robotic character.

He added to Collider.com: "It could be kind of fun. It could be kind of good to have a Helmet that I could hide behind for most of the film too, that sounds kind of appealing."

Jose has previously revealed he would love Irish-born Michael to take on the part.

He said: "I really like the Fassbender, I'd like to talk to him - I'll talk to him."

'RoboCop' is expected to come to cinemas in 2013.
