Last week there was news that Darren Aronofsky was interested in casting Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson for his wet n’ wild Bible epic, Noah. Now, Crowe has confirmed that but in order to impress Darren, he’s had to deny any involvement with the remake of Robocop. Poor Officer Murphy. Hasn’t he been shot down enough?
Crowe got on the Twitter to respond to a MovieWeb tweet that Aronofsky was “eyeing” him for the role with a “eyeing him right back…Liam’s eyeing both of us…and Paramount are eyeing us all, including you. Whole lot of eyeing.” Jeez. Get a room, you three.
Now that you’ve had time to wipe the image of a Neeson-Aronofsky-Crowe menage out of your minds, we can get on to Roboc — need another minute? ….
Okay, now we can get back to Robocop. Despite reports, Crowe denied any involvement with that project after flatly answering no to inquiries from fans. You may remember that Aronofsky was once attached to the remake but the deal didn’t pan out. Too bad too. Would be pretty awesome to see Aronofsky, Crowe, Neeson, and Robocop all get into bed together. (ComicBookMovie)
