In July 2008 at Comic-con MGM announced to the world that Darren Aronofsky, (director of The Wrestler, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream an Pi) shall be helming the 2010 recreation of Robocop. Screenwriter David Self (Road to Perdition) will be penning the script.
Mary Parent, MGM’s chairman said: “Darren is undeniably one of the most talented, original and visceral filmmakers, and David is one of the greatest writers in Hollywood. All of us at MGM couldn’t be more excited.” Whilst producers David Thwaites and Brad Fischer added: “With a filmmaker of Darren Aronofsky’s vision and imagination and a writer of David Self’s caliber, we are poised to bring to the screen an entertaining and provocative film, which will now be under the creative guidance of two of the best storytellers working in our industry today.”
Now all we need is Clint Mansell to do the score… . All of Aronosky’s movies are pure gold, needless to say I am very excited about this movie.
