RoboCopFormer Model turned The Wire Bad Ass, Michael K. Williams has joined the cast of ‘RoboCop.’ The man formally known as “Omar!” is ready to fight alongside Joel Kinnaman in MGM’s new take on the 80′s hit RoboCop.


Yes, Michael K. Williams who is currently starring on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, will play a good guy in this remake. His character has been described as a Partner, sidekick and buddy cop.


The film is already loaded with talent. Once thought to be a rumor or even a joke in some circles, this RoboCop remake is picking up some serious steam. The cast includes, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, and Hugh Laurie. Take that 80s fans who have trashed this remake on the IMDB board before seeing as much as an image from the set. Even Jackie Earle Kaley is on board. It’s time to geek out for this Science Fiction flick, not condemn it. I mean Abbie Cornish as Ellen Murphy! How great is that. I love her.


The film is being directed by Jose Padilha. He’s a Brazilian director and a smart one, he studied english at Oxford. He also directed the fantastic film Elite Squad back in 2007 — Rent the movie or borrow it from a friend, its really good.


Based on Michael Miner and Edward Neumeier’s characters, Nick Schenk, James Vanderbilt and Joshua Zetumer are writing the RoboCop screenplay. Yea, its a team effort. Look for it in theaters in 2013.
