Indie directors with big... budgets


The effects of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are already being felt and in a big way. MGM has just hired an iconic indie film director to try to reboot a major film franchise as it was announced that Darren Aronofsky will helm the new Robocop movie. 

Pretty soon explosion coordinators posing as directors (ahem, Michael Bay) aren't going to have any work, and boy is that going to be an exciting day.

Love Darren Aronofsky, but he must either be really hard pressed for a job after the Fountain TANKED, or he thinks he can do something with the material. 

Let's hope it's the former and Aronofsky can get his career back on track
