When RoboCop hits theaters in 2013, it'll likely be less satirical than the 1987 Paul Verhoeven original. Which means classic lines like "I'll buy that for a dollar!" Will be left on the floor of theaters past.
Intent on being in every big franchise ever known to man, Sam Jackson has boarded this sci-fi shoot-em-up opposite Joel Kinnaman as a big shot TV mogul named Pat Novak, a powerful force in the world inhabited by RoboCop.
The original featured many interstitial commercials and television parodies edited throughout the opening scenes of Alex J. Murphy's transformation into a cyborg officer on the Detroit Police Department. This casting news indicates that the reboot might involve similar scenes, or at least make a nod to this particular future's hyper-evolution in small screen entertainment.
RoboCop begins shooting in Toronto later this summer.
