Now that Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan is in theaters, he'll be moving onto new projects, and one that he's interested in pursuing is the Robocop reboot, which was cancelled back in July due to MGM's financial troubles.
Here's what Darren had to say about the Robocop reboot:
“Well, ‘RoboCop’ may still happen one day, who knows? It’s MGM and hopefully they’ll clear their stuff up and I’m still interested. David Self wrote a great script, but the company went under so…”
Given the fact that the new Bond movie is currently in the process of rising from the ashes, we're thinking maybe we'll hear more Robocop news sooner than later…especially since Darren is still innerested in the project!
In the meanwhile, he's got a similar project in the works, called Machine Man, which is based on Australian writer Max Barry’s online serial and upcoming book about “a geek who equips himself with high-end parts."
Guess we'll see what happens with Darren and all of these machine-related projects in the works. Maybe he can do a Wrestler sequel, where Randy "The Ram" returns to the ring…to fight robots!
