You can expect to hear some more F-bombs in the upcoming Robocop remake. Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to play Pat Novak, "a charismatic media mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world." He'll appear with The Killing's Joel Kinnaman in the title role and Gary Oldman as the scientist who brings him back to life. Casting stars from both The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises is probably a good strategy for ensuring box office success.
