Samuel L. Jackson is joining the cast of Robocop, the long awaited remake of the classic 1980s Sci-fi action flick.

The original film followed a terminally wounded cop who returned to the police force as a cyborg robot and fought bad guys in crime-ridden Detroit. The remake is said to follow the same premise.

Jackson will play Pat Novak, “a charismatic TV mogul and a powerful force in the Robocop world,” The Hollywood Reporter reports. Joel Kinnaman will play the title role.

Jackson can currently be seen in the record breaking film The Avengers, which has now become the 3rd highest-grossing release of all time.
