Exclusive: Michael K. Williams On Filming RoboCop Reboot: “We Had A Ball”

Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Michael K. Williams are starring in José Padilha’s 2014 remake of RoboCop, and HipHollywood is learning more about the highly anticipated film.

While on the red carpet to celebrate the premiere of Boardwalk Empire, HH caught up with Williams who gave us the inside scoop behind the sci-fi flick.

“We had a ball. We shot it in Toronto. It’s the same movie, it’s the reboot, but they made it fit in what’s going on today and what’s on the political table, if you will, the topic dealing with drones, and how society feels about it, and how corporate America feels about it,” the Boardwalk Empire star explained.

“It’s just the same story but with a different undertone to it,” the 46-year-old added.

RoboCop, set to release in 2014, will make the fourth installment of the franchise.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
