Darren Aronofsky Confirmed For Robocop

MGM has confirmed that Darren Aronofsky will direct the upcoming Robocop sequel/reboot. David Self (Road to Perdition) is tapped to write a script, which is rumored to take place in "Present day Los Angeles, 20 years after the termination of the RoboCop program, the city decides to reinstate the program." Phoenix Pictures' co-presidents Brad Fischer and David Thwaites say it will be "an entertaining and provocative film," which might be a stab at rumors of a possible PG-13 version. The film is being fast tracked for a 2010 release.
