Stage and screen star Samuel L. Jackson has joined the cast of MGM's upcoming remake of the 1987 film Robocop, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will star Joel Kinnaman as a police officer turned into a law-enforcing cyborg. Jackson will play Pat Novak, a charismatic TV mogul, and the film's cast will also include Gary Oldman as Robocop's scientist-creator. Jose Padilha is directing.

Jackson starred on Broadway earlier this season in The Mountaintop. He received an Oscar nomination for Pulp Fiction, and his many films include Shaft, A Time to Kill, Snakes on a Plane, The Negotiator, Changing Lanes, and the recent box office smash, The Avengers.
