Darren Aronofsky Could Abandon "Robocop"

Posted: December 19th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Darren Aronofsky Could Abandon "Robocop"Submit Comment
Last we heard, director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler) was still working on the upcoming "Robocop" movie. About a week ago, he mentioned that there is still a long way to go and "until there's a screenplay, there's nothing to really talk about."

Now, JoBlo is reporting that Aronofsky went on the Howard Stern Show, where he mentioned he was still working on the script, but currently isn't sure that the project will actually happen. Howard never got a follow-up, but based on what Aronofsky is saying, there is a chance that he might abandon "Robocop."

The site adds that the movie might be getting in the way of Aronofsky's other movie, "The Fighter," which apparently has been picking up steam.

And a little off-topic: Aronofsky mentioned that Dave Chappelle was his first choice for "Requiem for a Dream." The part eventually went to Marlon Wayans.

In RoboCop's defense.... no one was craving another Batman after 1997, but see what happens when good ideas emerge?

I only want him to abandon it if the studio does as well. they'd just hand it down to a lesser anyways...What's wrong with getting Verhoeven to do another one? Martin Campbell jumpstarted both Brosnan and Craig Bond eras...what's wrong with a good director returning? Verhoeven would make an awesome film and he commands special effects just as good as the next guy. If it aint broke dont fix...and if they screw with the sound design im gonna kill someone. Robocop's footsteps alone were enough to give you the chills.

The Fighter, in light of The Wrestler, sounds like old hat now. Maybe Darren should look else where for something of his caliber.?

If any director is not confident about the work he's creating he should abandon it. No one wants to see a movie when the director has considered abandoning the project.
