After MGM famously succumbed to financial troubles, which it is only now /mgm-sees-plan-of-reorganization-approved/slowly recovering from, its planned 2010 remake of RoboCop fell into the dustbin of history. Darren Aronofsky was set to direct this Frankenstein-like retelling of a Detroit cop who gets killed on duty to only later be resurrected as a robotic law enforcer. When the project crumbled, Darren Aronofsky took on the critically acclaimed Black Swan instead.

Now, as the director gets ready for The Wolverine and MGM pulls itself out of its financial hellhole, Aronofsky is once again thinking abuot the prospects of resurrecting the mighty metal giant.

About coming back to direct RoboCop 2.0, Darren had this to say to The Playlist:

"Well, 'RoboCop' may still happen one day, who knows? It's MGM and hopefully they'll clear their stuff up and I'm still interested. David Self wrote a great script, but the company went under so..."

There won't be any substantial news about the resurrection of RoboCop until MGM is back on solid ground. At this time, MGM still has James Bond 23 and The Hobbit to worry about first.
