In a recent interview with The Toronto Sun, Jackson confirmed that he is still signed on to co-star.

I’ve been running from or chasing King Kong, Godzilla, the Wolfman, whatever, since I was a kid [in Chatanooga, Tenn.]. We’d go home and pretend to do all that stuff. So I’m doing Kong for the same reason I’ll probably be doing The Blob. I just got a call the other day (where the producers) said they finally got their money from China to do Blob.”

The site also revealed that The Blob will film before Jackson films his part of Avengers: Infinity War.
Jackson will play the role of a Biochemistry Professor In the film Jackson’s character volunteers to find a way to stop The Blob, an organism from space that develops into a big jello type creature that consumes everything in its path.
Samuel L. “Mother Fucking” Jackson is known for his roles in movies such as Django Unchained, Snakes on a Plane, Pulp Fiction and his continued role as Nick Furry in the Avengers franchise.
“A terrifying reimagining of an enduring horror icon, based on the 1958 sci-fi classic that starred Steve McQueen and has thrilled genre fans since. When a band of miners uncover something hidden deep beneath the earth, they unwittingly unleash a hideous creature beyond imagination. Now the townsfolk must fight back… before it destroys everything.”
