Robocop – Darren Aronofsky is still attached to the reboot
Posted by LiveFor on February 10, 2010
The last we had heard about the proposed Robocop reboot was this it was pretty much dead in the water and Darren Aronofsky didn’t want to film it in 3D and had moved on to other things – the film Black Swan featuring Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman as ballet dancers who have a violent sex scene together and one of them may not exist.
Now STYD spoke to screenwriter David Self about the Robocop film.
“I’m still involved with it and Darren Aronofsky’s still involved with it,” said Self. “He’s making another movie right now (Black Swan), but we’re waiting for MGM, to sort things out since they’re a large corporation and it’s a situation where we have to be practical. We’re waiting to continue with them, we hope that that happens soon and we can get back to it soon.”
Will the new film be a sequel, prequel or reboot? Self explained, “It’s definitely not a sequel. It’s an origin story, it’s an origin to the original Robocop. So, it’s basically a ‘reboot’.”
Do you want a Robocop reboot? Who should play Murphy and what do you want to see in it?
