As the RoboCop remake draws ever closer to production, word out of H’wood has another well known actor joining the cast.

According to Heat Vision, Samuel L. Jackson has been tapped to join the MGM and Sony remake. Sadly, no Peter Weller to be seen in the casting list, but Joel Kinnaman will play Alex Murphy, the cop brought back to life as a cyborg tasked with keeping the peace.

Jackson will play Pat Novak, a charismatic media mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world.

Does that mean he’ll play a big bad, or will we get to hear him utter the phrase, “I’ll buy that for a dollar!?”
