Aronofsky confirmed for RoboCop
Earlier this month we heard that Darren Aronofsky was in talks to direct MGM's RoboCop reinvention. Well now it's been confirmed he will do it, and we know who the writer is as well.
I'm still on the fence about this one, but Darren Aronofsky's involvement is a big plus.
The Hollywood Reporter say that Darren Aronofsky will direct RoboCop with David Self writing the script. Self also write Road to Perdition and Thirteen Days. Aronofsky next project The Fighter has hit some delays, which has meant he has been able to take on RoboCop.
MGM aren't messing around, it sounds like a great pairing. And with a decent budget, and a promise that the new film will have a similar tone and feel to the first, could this maybe work out? The only slightly worrying thing is that they are fast tracking it for release in 2010, let's hope it doesn't look rushed.
Are you up for a RoboCop reinvention? Are you pleased Aronofsky is directing?
