Scraps: Requiem for a Robocop (7/24/08)

Finally, the reason why Darren Aronofsky’s people weren’t returning my calls regarding the Face Face movie — he’s directing a new Robocop film. 

You read that right, folks. The director behind such films as Requiem for a Dream, Pi, and The Fountain will be bringing the “part man, part machine, all cop” back to the big screen some time in 2010. I guess he wanted to challenge himself.

Send your videogame-related news and tips to [email protected] … because this whole Aronofsky directing a new Robocop thing has us frazzled. Oh, and did we mention that David Self (Road to Perdition) is writing this film? What planet do we live on?
