Samuel L. Jackson Joins ROBOCOP Remake

Samuel_L_Jackson Frequent Tarantino collaborator Samuel L. Jackson is now joining the cast of MGM’s RoboCop reboot, which begins production this September in Toronto. Jackson will reteam with the recently-announced Gary Oldman in Elite Squad director Jose Padilha‘s upcoming remake. While Oldman plays a scientist who creates the titular cyborg creation from the body of gunned-down cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), The Pulp Fiction and Avengers star is playing a ‘charismatic TV mogul’ named Pat Novak who is ‘a powerful force in the Robocop world.’ As you know, the story follows a cop who — on the edge of death — is turned into a cyborg police officer. I think it’s safe to assume that Padilha’s version will differ quite a bit from the original Paul Verhoeven film. MGM is planning a release date sometime in the summer of 2013. As for Jackson, he will be in Django Unchained as well, playing a house slave that works for Leonardo DiCaprio. Stay tuned. RobCop_Funmade_Concept Source: THR
