The cast and crew of the RoboCop remake are in Hamilton to shoot scenes for the film, which will come out in 2013.

Yesterday, local residents lined up along James Street North and Colbourne to watch the rain towers at work for special effects.

The film crew will be shooting scenes from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Sept. 26, 29 and 30, as well as Oct. 1. On those days, James St. N. will be closed off to traffic between Barton St. and Cannon St. from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Businesses will remain open and locals are welcome to drop by during filming, which is expected to bring $350,000 to the city.

The cast of the science fiction action film includes Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton.
