Darren Aronofsky to Direct New Robocop Feature

The director of The Fountain will work from a script by David Self, writer of Road to Perdition.

Cale Boyter, Executive Vice President of Production for MGM, will be overseeing the Phoenix Pictures production.

Mike Medavoy, Chairman and CEO of Phoenix Pictures, announced:

"I’m thrilled to be helping to return this character to the screen with our partners at MGM and through the eyes of Darren Aronofsky and David Self."

No other details have been released about the production, though an MGM poster at the 2008 Licensing International Expo announced: "Robocop coming 2010."

The official MGM press release declared:

The original Robocop, which premiered in 1987, was 'part man, part machine and all cop.' The film's storyline focused on the future of law enforcement as a terminally wounded cop returns to the police force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories. The original film was nominated for two Academy Awards – Best Film Editing and Best Sound. Since the film’s debut, Robocop has become one of the most successful titles in MGM's vast film library."
