Keaton will be joining fellow castmates Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-BaptisteJackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel, and Jennifer Ehle.

Keaton, although first known for his comedies such as "Mr. Mom" and "Beetlejuice", also plays villians, as in "Pacific Heights" and "Desperate Measures". He has recently finished wrapping up Joseph Ruben's "Penthouse North".

"RoboCop" will be directed by José Padilha("Elite Squad"), from a script by Nick Schenk, James Vanderbilt, and Joshua Zetumer.

Expect "RoboCop" to come to theaters August 9th, 2013.
