Let me put it this way - I hope my way of thinking is closer to the truth than yours, otherwise we're all in for a shitty few years of movies....

Well, that's a nice, optimistic approch. Unfortunately, all these pointless remakes smakck of , yes, yes, Hollywood running out of ideas, and whilst I understand that during the current economic climate,  the movie 'business' needs to make more safe money making movies, like the Michael Bay type blockbusters.

RoboCop is a perfectly structured movie and is a perfect example of the '80s uber-violent cyber punk genre and has no need to be updated. The chances that Aronifsky has dropped out bodes very badly for what was already a bad idea IMO, naturally.

Robocop is a masterpiece, we all know that, but I still think there's loads of potential for interesting sequels.

I also don't see anything wrong with letting go of the satire and making it a dark horror/thriller.

But Robocop IS a satire. & lets face it the powers that be don't want a dark horror/thriller they want as wide an audience as possible so this remake will probably be a heavily sanitised version. I can't imagine them having a little kid gangster running around with a gun killing people like in Robocop2!!

Paul Verhoeven's film was a satire, and a great one (ditto Robocop 2) but I'd be interested in the story of a half machine half cop going in a different direction.

Not a remake though but a sequel.

There is a segment from the Manga anime 'A.D. Police' where a similar cop-to-robot tranformation happens and the human brain starts to go crazy inside the mechanical body. The only thing he can do to 'feel' is to grind his human tongue between his teeth and eventually goes mental.

I think a similar sort of exceptionally dark concept would be very interesting to explore, but it shouldn't be called 'RoboCop'.

The best news I have heard in a while. The last thing Aaronofsky needs is to sell out.


He was probably only doing it because he needed a commercial hit. The success of The Wrestler means that he no longer needs to.
