Everybodys favourite King of cool Samuel L Jackson ('Avengers Assemble') is apparently set to join the cast of Brazilian director Josť Padilha's action thriller redo 'RoboCop'. According to the Hollywood Reporter Jackson will play a character called Pat Novak who is being described as "a charismatic media mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world". The busy actor who seems to pop up in every movie I watch lately, particularly when he's sporting the recognisable eye patch as comic book hero Nick Fury, Jackson (below) will join Brit actor Gary Oldman ('Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix', 'The Dark Knight Rises') and Joel Kinnaman ('The Darkest Hour') who is set to play the metal headed justice enforcer.
"In a crime-ridden city, a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg with submerged memories haunting him."
'RoboCop' is being lined up for a 9 August 2013 opening.
