RoboCop Cancelled July 27, 2010 RoboCop Remake scrapped… The upcoming remake of the clasic ’80s sci-fi RoboCop has been cancelled. The project was shelved earlier this year due to financial problems at studio MGM. Now reports indicate the film has been scrapped entirely. According to Moviehole: “[RoboCop is] gone. Kaput. Cancelled. It was one of the first casualties. [Aronofsky] has lost interest anyway, I believe. [I] think we’re all just going to have to be happy with the three RoboCop movies that are out there.” The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky was due to make the film.
