Report: Samuel L. Jackson joins “Robocop” remake.

The “Avengers” star will play a TV mogul in the remake of the 1987 film directed by Paul Verhooven.

TotalFilm reports:

“Jackson is set to play a character named Pat Novak, a charismatic TV mogul who carries a lot of sway in the universe being created by director Jose Padilha.

Jackson joins a cast that includes The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop himself, as well as Gary Oldman as the scientist responsible for the transforming plain old Alex Murphy into a mechanised law enforcer.

Filming on the project is expected to begin in Toronto in September, with MGM hoping to have the film ready in time for a release date somewhere around summer 2013.”
