Aronofsky's 'RoboCop' remake put on hold
Darren Aronofsky's RoboCop remake has been put on hold, reports Moviehole.

Studio MGM has halted the sci-fi action movie after failing to agree with Aronofsky on how to approach the special effects work. According to a source from the film's production company Phoenix Pictures, the director is keen to avoid modern, computer-generated techniques.

"The project is on hold," the insider told RoboCop Archive. "The problem is that Mary Parent, chairperson of MGM, wants a 3D movie for the new RoboCop. But, as you know, Darren Aronofsky is a real artist and he's not interested in gimmicks like 3D, CGI [or] filming digital. He wants to do everything as real (organic) as possible just like The Fountain."

Paul Verhoeven's original RoboCop, which was released in 1987, spawned two sequels, a TV series and several video games.
