Aronofsky still keen on Robocop?

The stories surrounding Darren Aronofsky's involvement with Robocop are about as up and down as Officer Alex Murphy's vital stats.

After months of serious news drought on the reboot, David Self - who's penning the remake - explained that the director is still attached.

In an interview with STYD , Self explained;

"I’m still involved with it and Darren Aronofsky’s still involved with it...We’re waiting for MGM to sort things out since they’re a large corporation and it’s a situation where we have to be practical. We’re waiting to continue with them, we hope that that happens soon and we can get back to it soon."

Aronofsky is currently filming Black Swan with Natalie Portman - if MGM can get their act together, hopefully he'll be swapping ballet pumps for thigh-holstered hand-cannons. Here's hoping.

We reported back in 2008 how Aronofsky was less than enthusiastic about the reboot in an interview on The Howard Stern Show, but this latest news will provide some fresh hope to Robo fans around the world.
