Darren Aronofsky Confirmed For Robocop

With David Self to write the script

Putting to end weeks of online rumour, it's been confirmed today that Darren Aronofsky will direct a new installment in the Robocop series, with David Self (Road To Perdition) writing the script.

There are no suggestions of what the plot might be, but the wording of MGM's press release suggests that this won't be a remake of the 1987 movie about a crime fighter who is part man and part machine – "and all cop" – but "a new installment". There are whispers that it will take place in modern day, but those whispers aren't coming from any mouth that we can consider 100% reliable.

So, what do you reckon, is Aronofsky the right guy to bring Robocop back to the streets? Do you want to see Robocop back?
