I’ll hold judgement until I see a Photoshop of him riding a unicorn.
Gary Oldman’s manager got himself a role.
BATMAN VS. ROBOCOP!!!
In all fairness, RoboCop is a very nuanced character.
Will he be able to diagnose Robocop’s medical problem in time to save him?
Be sure not to schedule any TRON-themed parties for that weekend.
And he totally hates ‘Robocop’.
Like Robocop’s one-man mission to eliminate crime in Detroit, relatively unknown writer Josh Zetumer has also been given a gargantuan task: write a new version of the it’s-exactly-perfect-as-it-is film ‘Robocop’.
I'm sad to report that those of us waiting to see a poignant, arthouse remake of a film about a part robot, part human cop who walks through walls and fights cyber-ninjas are to be left wanting. Darren Aronofsky's long-in-the-works, inexplicable remake of Robocop has officially been scrapped. The collapse of the project was came about for two reasons: MGM's money problems, and Darren Aronofsky's realizing that he is Darren Aronofsky. (Moviehole)
Last we heard, Darren Aronofsky had decided to walk from the troubled Robocop remake due to his unwillingness to present the film in gimmicky 3D. It appears that he and the cash-strapped MGM have worked something out and he's ready to create the future of law enforcement according to our source. An insider at Digital Dimension has confirmed their company has been conducting visual effects tests and have received a great deal of feedback from Aronofsky. Word is that he "just loves the stuff." Our tipster also made mention that Sam Worthington is very likely to fill the role of Officer Murphy. It's his role to lose from what we've been told. Of course, Worthington's schedule is jam-packed with the adaptations of Dan Dare and The Last Days of American Crime and there's no official word when Robocop will ramp up. Though it is expected that Aronofsky is deciding between that or Serena with hot mom Angelina Jolie as his next project. We'll keep you posted. We realize this news sounds dodgy so to sweeten the pot we have an EXCLUSIVE look at early composite from Digital Dimension AFTER THE JUMP…
