Good morning folks, it’s time for your wacky rumour of the day. We’ve had confirmation for a while now that MGM is indeed doing a remake of Robocop… in 3D no less. I think most people are generally pretty uninterested in the idea since the original Robocop still holds up so well today. But hey, you never know, sometimes with the right people involved, remakes can be wonderful things. Up until now, we haven’t heard much about who might direct such a thing, but this week the studio has name dropped none other than Darren Aronofsky as a potential candidate!
Wow, I am still in shock. Aronofsky has been associated with a few blockbusters in the past (most notably Batman Begins) but up until now his movies have been strictly art house fare (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain). He’s certainly not someone I would have ever thought to be suitable for this project, but now that his name is out there, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued. Part of me thinks the studio is just trying to bring the project some credibility by even talking to him, but I guess it’s a smart move on their part. What do you think, does Aronofsky have a kick ass Robocop movie somewhere in him? Would this be enough get you interested in watching the remake?
