Darren Aronofsky Forced To Exit ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

Two of the stranger announcements of recent memory involved Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. One was when we were informed that he would be directing a remake of RoboCop and the other was news that he was going to take on a sequel to the not-so-popular comic book spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine, titled The Wolverine.

It didn’t take long before RoboCop fell apart, but there was a point in time where it seemed like he was really going to join star Hugh Jackman and deliver a Wolverine flick. Now comes word, unfortunately, that Aronofsky has decided to step away from the movie, though it seems as though he had little choice in the matter.

MGM Is Back With ‘RoboCop,’ ‘Poltergeist’ & ‘Mr. Mom’ Remakes
  |  @   |  

And round ‘n’ round we go!

Remakes of movies like RoboCop and Poltergeist have been around for quite a while now, but appeared to be casualties of the many financial complications faced by MGM recently. Since then, the studio has figured some things out, made a couple moves, and saved their two top properties in The Hobbit and James Bond 23.

Next up for MGM was getting a trio of remakes of theirs back into motion. It’s being reported that thought-to-be-deceased remakes of the previously mentioned RoboCop and Poltergeist, as well as a remake of Mr. Mom are said to be back on and currently in motion.

An Oscar Nominations Observation: Did ‘The Social Network’ Doom Itself?

The Social Network over the past couple months has been unabashedly accepting every award and congratulatory remark that has been sent its way. It seemed the film was determined to be held in eminence amongst other films that are in awards contention this year. Since the film opened in early October it has been on an irrepressible ascent, exceeding every other film in critical acclaim (according to the online site Metacritic it scored an impressive 95).

Satisfaction endured on the film’s behalf all the way up until this past Tuesday morning, where David Fincher‘s Facebook film tallied a total of 8 Oscar nominations. You may say such a particular outing is absolutely superb. But taking into consideration the mentality of students attending Harvard University (like those in The Social Network), 8 is somewhat of a disappointment when you can have many more. Such students anticipate nothing but the best. Given the multitude of accolades The Social Network received, a measly 8 nominations simply cannot be adequately embraced.

Darren Aronofsky Working On A Batman Comic Book?

Director Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain, Pi, Black Swan) revealed that he’s working on a Batman comic book project based on a script intended for film, according to a recent interview he did for Clothes To Film.

Aronofsky said the Batman comic hasn’t been officially announced — possibly indicating that he’s yet to approach DC Comics editorial office — and that the story is being adapted from a script that’s “difficult to make”.

Since Christopher Nolan is hard at work on the third installment of his own Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, it’s more-or-less safe to say that Aronofsky’s script is nothing more than a pet project at this point — meaning a comic book would make sense.
