Holy Crap, Aronofsky is Directing 'RoboCop'

Any of the (few) times a nearly-anonymous girl has asked me if I want to go back to her place, I've had basically the same internal reaction every time: "Wait, really? I mean, I guess it makes some sense, but wow, I didn't think it was actually going to happen. Man, this is great. Who would have thought?" I bring this up because that's approximately the same conversation that when through my head when I heard the news today that Darren Aronofsky is doing a Robocop movie. From Variety:

Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct and David Self is penning a new installment about the hero whose tagline is "part man, part machine and all cop."

"RoboCop," which is being fast-tracked for a 2010 release, becomes the first potential tentpole to come together since Mary Parent took the reins of MGM in March. Aronofsky's involvement has been one of the worst kept secrets, with rumors rampant in the blogosphere that "The Fountain" helmer was eyeing the project.

"Now don't screw this up, me!" (Me being Darren Aronofsky, in this case.)

(Wayne sent this in. So thanks, Wayne.)
