It looks like the reboot of Robocop is attempting to be more badass because the word came down that Samuel L Jackson has signed on to join the cast of the Robocop film. Maybe, the addition of Jackson will make the original Robocop star Peter Weller stopped his whining and hatred about all things related to the reboot and actually make him a least a little bit enthusiastic about it.
The starring role in the film (Robocop) is going to be played by Joel Kinnaman and Gary Oldman has signed on to be the scientist who creates Robocop. As far as Samuel L Jackson goes the character named Pat Novak who is an energetic television mogul who also happens to be a very powerful man in the world in which Robocop is set.
Filming on the film starts in September of this year and it should be released during the summer of 2013.
I hope they let Samuel L Jackson be extremely bad ass in this film but no matter what I’m pretty sure his character at some point will utter Samuel L Jackson’s most popular word selection “Mother F@#cker.
