Aronofsky Off ROBOCOP Remake?
Well, maybe not yet … but it looks to be heading in that direction. Or at least that’s what an article at CHUD is suggesting.
It seems MGM wants Robocop as their big tent-pole release for 2011. But they’re chafing at Darren Aronofsky’s interest in making this a hard R-rated film with a mega-budget. MGM honchos don’t want a Watchmen style release, i.e. critical plaudits and weak box office.
CHUD thinks that the movie will get its R-rating, but perhaps without Aronofsky on board. We doubt both and expect to see a non-Aronofsky PG-13 Robocop in 2011, accompanied by the usual geek grumbling.
