Samuel L. Jackson joins himself with Robocop
Samuel L. Jackson has joined the upcoming ROBOCOP movie, a move that has upped its BAMF quotient to new heights. Word is that he will play "Pat Novak, a charismatic media mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world."
This will mark Jackson's first movie with Gary Oldman since TRUE ROMANCE, as Oldman was recently cast in the role of the scientist who brings police officer Alex Murphy back from near-death and turns him into the titular Robocop.
A summer 2013 release date is being eyed for the remake/reimagining/whatever, with production aiming to start this September in Toronto.
|Extra Tidbit:||Jackson worked as a camera stand in for Bill Cosby in "The Cosby Show." Ten years later, at the age of 46, PULP FICTION happened.|
