Hard Times in Hollywood

Q: What happens when you make a couple of acclaimed films (Pi, Requiem for a Dream) and follow 'em up with one mired in various chaotic circumstances, ultimately ending in a flop? (Plus, to top it off, Evan Almighty pretty much kills the chances of you making your dark, biblical epic about Noah and the making of the ark.)

A: You get to work with Mickey Rourke AND you get to revive a tired comic book/sci-fi franchise, that's what. (This is all just a roundabout way of saying director Darren Aronofsky is doing the new RoboCop flick.)
