SDCC : RoboCop is Gone. Kaput. Canceled.

ComicCon

About half-an-hour after a reader sent over a link to a Financial Times article in the suggesting Darren Aronofsky had scrapped all plans for his “Robocop” remake (to no one’s surprise really, right? I mean, MGM can’t even afford to feed the lion right now, let alone those on the payroll!) I fortuitously ran into an old friend from the studio, here at Comic Con… as he dashed his way up the escalators.

It was brief, but we managed to speak a little about the MGM situation (“… but don’t print that” ) was muttered a few times) and Aronofsky’s “RoboCop” remake.

“Gone. Kaput. Canceled. It was one of the first casualties”, my Metro-Goldwyn Buddy said. “[Darren] has lost interest anyway, I believe. Think we’re all just going to have to be happy with the three RoboCop movies that are out there”.

Apparently MGM were also looking at doing another “Rocky” movie – though not necessarily with Sylvester Stallone – and a new “Amityviille Horror” , shortly before the roof caved in.

Had no time to ask about the Bond and “Hobbit” situation but might bump into my friend over the weekend again sometime.
