Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming RoboCop reboot has reportedly been put on hold.
The director is planning to remake the 1987 sci-fi film, which starred Peter Weller, but speculation about the movie's future was sparked when the release date was recently pushed back from this year (10) until 2011.
And now rumours the film is in jeopardy have been fuelled by reports Aronofksy is resisting studio plans to make the movie in 3D, with Moviehole.net claiming the picture has been put on ice.
A source tells the website, "I've spoken with Phoenix Pictures (and) asked them about the status of RoboCop... they told me that the project is on hold. 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, Filming digital, he wants to do everything as real as possible just like (his previous movie) The Fountain."
