We all know the Robocop reboot was supposed to come out in 2010 but that never happened because MGM went belly up. Well director Darren Aronofsky still hopes to make it .


Darren Aronofsky told The Playlist that the Robocop reboot "may still happen one day."

The film was being developed at MGM along with The Hobbit and James Bond 23 before the company come into financial problems.


Aronofsky said, "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 ... "


The Playlist said Aronofsky has another cyborg film in the works called Machine Man. Aronofsky will most likely make Machine Man after filming ends on The Wolverine next year.

So boys and girls what do you think do you still even want Robocop reboot at this point ?

Well in the mean time here's some more concept art from Jason Hazelroth enjoy.

CoolioVids - 2/17/2011, 10:37 AM

i think this would be a fun reboot as far as reboots go. i honestly have some faith in this film. i bet SELF AND ARONOFSKY would create something very enjoyable with modern day FX and stuff
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/17/2011, 10:54 AM
It would be cool to see Aronofsky tackle with Robocop but if the movie is going to look something like those concept arts i say no [frick]ing way!
Stumblin - 2/17/2011, 11:00 AM
I would be down with a new Robocop, Detroit could use some screen time and hopefully boost some economy.
spider1489 - 2/17/2011, 11:05 AM
i like the design and think enough time has past for a reboot!
IronicMan - 2/17/2011, 11:11 AM
His chest looks like War Machine's face.
Shaman - 2/17/2011, 11:17 AM
Although the art is well done, the "new" concept is complete shit.
Stumblin - 2/17/2011, 11:18 AM
I'm originally from Detroit, the Unions pretty much screwed the city over as well as consumers not buying American made cars. It used to be a fantastic town, one of which that helped build the very foundation of this country.

It's sad that a lot of people don't respect that at least.

What happen to the statue they were suppose to do?
Runefyst - 2/17/2011, 11:31 AM
They don't need to change Robocop's look. That concept art looks too much like Iron-Tron
kurekurcubic - 2/17/2011, 11:38 AM
these news are at leist 2 months old.just like wolverine yesterday.
while its great news,its little dissapointing to enter here and see the same old news...
StrangerX - 2/17/2011, 11:46 AM
I love the idea of another RoboCop but i'm def not liking the concept art.
Stumblin - 2/17/2011, 11:48 AM
Spock, the Mayor said that he wouldn't let it happen.
Malfunk1 - 2/17/2011, 11:50 AM
With all the remakes, reboots, sequels & prequels out
there right now, a new robocop movie would be right on
time. I'm a huge fan of the three robo movies & would
love to see a new chapter on this iconic character.
CapFan79 - 2/17/2011, 11:51 AM
Looks like Iron Man and Tron.
duncboy - 2/17/2011, 11:55 AM
Just as an FYI, as a local Detroiter I am proud to say BOOOOOOOYAH!

Eh I'd say it looks more like the nano suits from the Crysis games.
WeaponXI - 2/17/2011, 12:17 PM
too much like iron man and tron

but its still an awesome pic
Dynamo - 2/17/2011, 12:17 PM
I remember him saying it wasn't going to be a reboot but more of a sequel. Kind of like Predators.
orin - 2/17/2011, 12:28 PM
Well that first pic, the banner, makes him look too mobile.
Far too much like Iron Man, and not enough like RoboCop.

But those other pics, of him and the car, rock IMO.
As a hardcore RoboCop fan, this gets my approval.
I LOVE the first movie. I love about half of the second one, and enjoyed some elements of the animated shows and live-action shows, and made for TV movies. I like the comics too.

I'm totally down for a new RoboCop.
Just as long as it keeps the political commentary and satire of the original film.
Stumblin - 2/17/2011, 12:37 PM
Champ6, awesome! So they are still going through with it! [frick] the Mayor :D
marvel72 - 2/17/2011, 12:50 PM
no reboot,why not make robocop 4 ?

@ intruder

if look on imdb (its probably fake)but its says on there that darren aronofsky name is attached too a movie called machine man,i don't know if its the marvel character,but you never know.
Ripper - 2/17/2011, 1:02 PM
I thought this was about ROBOCOP?
ManofSteel22 - 2/17/2011, 1:04 PM
YES do a remake,the old ones dont have that futuristic feel anymore,it just feel like a shit hole of a city that managed to make a robot man...
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/17/2011, 1:09 PM
intruder@ I hope he talked about that Machine Man :)
tocap - 2/17/2011, 1:36 PM
i say go with a ''robocop return'' kind of movie but no reboot, the first one is gold, you don't fock with that! i love robocop...
Spock - 2/17/2011, 3:31 PM
@ stumblin thanks!
comicb00kguy - 2/17/2011, 3:55 PM
The original Robocop movie is one of my all-time favorites. I hated the sequels, especially Robocop 2, which is the worst film I ever saw. A 'reboot' isn't needed here so much as a good sequel that returns to the spirit and attitude of the first film. I'd buy that for a dollar!

These concept sketches are awful. They would fit in far better with the Judge Dredd film.
Rubbers - 2/17/2011, 4:07 PM
As for the concept art, it's just really speculation at this point, so I'll take it at that. They needed to make this movie before they rebooted Hulk and the current production of the new Spiderman.

Hopefully, if they do "reboot" Robocop, they'll give him at least the ability run instead of chasing "bad guys" as if he were an 80's analog software program/automated robotic arm working in a car manufacturing plant's assembly line. The famous head turn, upper body twist, that's follow by the stomping sound effect of fear isn't going to work anymore. Loved it as a kid, but this Robocop needs new innovative ways of catching crooks.
GuyF1105 - 2/17/2011, 6:32 PM
yawn
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/17/2011, 7:05 PM
Actually the makers of Robocop based the charcter on Ironman,so in away Robocop is ironman lol....Im still interested in a reboot. I wanna see the new and improve Robocop, from Darren Aronofsky. If not the machine man when its made can have some ideas from robocop and i can see some sci-fi glory again.
Devastator335 - 2/17/2011, 7:38 PM
Make the Robocop is badass, and a reboot would be kickass!

The Style of RoboCop was inspired partially by Judge Dredd.
And the look was a mixture of Iron Man and Rom.

In fact, when the Iron Man movie came out, one of my first reactions to seeing his armor, was "holy crap, a new RoboCop movie would rule!".

Considering he's had 3 movies, 2 live-action shows, 2 animated shows, a bunch of games, and a bunch of comics...
and the ONLY great thing to come out of this franchise was the FIRST movie...
I say it's high-time for a new RoboCop. Maybe something great to compensate for the general mediocrity of the franchise.
I liked some of the spin-offs. But he could do with some more greatness.

@ comicb00kguy:

"The original Robocop movie is one of my all-time favorites. I hated the sequels, especially Robocop 2, which is the worst film I ever saw."

You're saying you like RoboCop 3 more than RoboCop 2?!?!

You do remember that 3 had him flying around fighting robot ninjas right?!

"These concept sketches are awful. They would fit in far better with the Judge Dredd film."

It's funny you should say that.
The original concept and visual style of RoboCop was partially inspired by Judge Dredd, Iron Man, and ROM.
