Murphy it's you - Robocop remake news

It has been a while since there has been an update regarding this project. An MGM spoke to io9 about the Robocop remake / reboot. It is still being made, but it won't be out for a 2010 release. The rep said that the studio had told distributors at an event a couple weeks ago to expect the movie in 2011. He said director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, The Fountain) and screenwriter David Self (Road to Perdition) were still working on the script, and that no casting had been completed.

"Darren and David are working on it now, and we look forward to seeing it in 2011."

I do still wonder what they can do with Robocop. The original film was a work of wonder. The fact Aronofsky is attached does intrigue me though.

Hopefully, they'll keep the cool look of Robocop in place. What do you want from the new Robocop film? Who could play the titanium encased lawman?
