Darren Aronofsky’s remake of sci-fi classic RoboCop has been put on hold.
According to Moviehole the director has clashed with studio MGM on how the special effects would work in the movie.
An insider told RoboCop Archive: "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 [or] filming digital. He wants to do everything as real (organic) as possible just like The Fountain."
Aronofsky is currently filming Black Swan, a psychological thriller with Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, and it will be his first film since the critically acclaimed The Wrestler which was released in early 2009.
This is the second lot of bad news for MGM in a week as it was revealed by producer Michael G. Wilson that Bond 23 might not go into production until the studio was sold.
RoboCop first hit cinema screens back in 1987 and was directed by Paul Verhoeven and produced two sequels in 1990 and 1993.
