IO9 blips on two movies you and I all came to love. The Robocop franchise, as we all know, expects a re-make in 2010 by Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain). It turns out that the movie will not be a sequel, but a completely new take, co-orchestrated by script writer David Self. According to IO9, he’s also hinting at a Peter Weller cameo (Weller being the “original” Robocop in the original movie.)

Appleseed director Shinji Aramaki is working on a new anime series called Viper’s Creed by Gundam script writer Ai Ōta – ANN sez: “The story revolves around the members of a private military company (PMC), and the uneasy tension between them and the regular military after a war that caused massive environmental destruction.”
