Robocop 2010 Teaser

Remake of RoboCop is on Hold

Robocop 2010 TeaserWe have been hearing for years that there is going to be a RoboCop remake, they even got Darren Aronofsky to sign on for the project, but there has been very little movement on the project. To me it actually seems to that Aronofsky is not too keen about bringing the character back to the big screen. Also another reason why Robocop hasn’t made any progress is because of MGM’s financial wow’s.

‘Tron’ Casting News and Changes

Garrett Hedlund
This movie what ever the hell it ends up being called has more twist to it that only rivals Britney Spears life!

Am I just missing some logic here? Whatever the movie is named will be directed by Joseph Kosinski.

Yomigaeru Sora Gets Live-Action Film

Yomigaeru Sora
The Japanese production company Bandai Visual is adapting the 2006 television anime series Yomigaeru Sora – RESCUE WINGS – and Rescue Wings manga as a live-action film. Masaaki Tezuka, the director best known for the Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla and Sengoku Jieitai 1549 films, will oversee the project. The original anime’s story centers on a fighter pilot trainee named Kazuhiro Uchida who gets reassigned to a helicopter search-and-rescue unit, much to his (initial) dismay. By contrast, the live-action film will revolve around a female pilot named Haruka Kawashima; the model and actress Yūko Takayama (Cosplay Yūrei Guren Onna) will play the lead role.
