Robocop Is Back
Keeping with the trend of rebooting franchises (Batman, Terminator, etc), MGM has officially confirmed their plans to restart the Robocop series.
The movie will be a sequel set in present day LA, where 20 years after the termination of the Robocop Program, the city decides to start it back up again. The kind of cool news is that it will be directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Fountain) and written by David Self (Road to Perdition). This actually makes me want to give the movie a chance, so we'll see what this duo can do-o with the work they've got ahead of them. No official title has been given yet (it will technically be the fourth in the series), but the release date is set for 2010.
