“The Wire” and “Boardwalk Empire” actor Michael Kenneth Williams is in negotiations to join the cast of RoboCop, MGM and Sony’s remake of the classic 1987 sci-fi action movie, says THR.
The movie is gearing up for a September start in Toronto and has amassed a line up that includes Joel Kinnaman as the title hero, Hugh Laurie as the villain, plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley.
Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) is directing the film. The original took place in a dystopic and crime ridden Detroit where a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg with submerged memories haunting him.
Williams will play the partner to Kinnaman’s police officer Alex Murphy who is tight with Murphy’s family. Sony will release August 9, 2013.
