Samuel L. Jackson cast in Robocop

But sadly, not as Robocop.

Samuel L. Jackson has joined the cast of Jose Padilha’s remake of Robocopwhich already has Joel Kinnaman attached to the lead role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson will play Pat Novak, a “charismatic media mogul and a powerful force.” Sounds villainous to us!

Kinnaman will take on the role of Alex Murphy – played by Peter Weller in Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 original – a loyal police officer whose bullet-ridden body is scrapped in favour of an advanced robotic frame.

Discuss: Does Jackson’s presence have you intrigued, or is the whole project unnecessary in your eyes robotic visor? (We were also toying with a play on Nick Fury’s eye-patch…)
