UPDATED: MGM Planning To Reboot Five Films

MGM is reportedly planning reboots for five films, 'Robocop', 'Idolmaker', 'Mr. Mom', 'Poltergeist', and 'Hercules'...

Variety is reporting that MGM will soon be getting the ball rolling on 5 planned reboots which will include Mr. Mom and The Idolmaker, the reboots of RoboCop and Poltergeist, and a Hercules movie.

Some of you will remember that Darren Aronofsky was originally set to direct a RoboCop movie in the past. To date there has been 3 'RoboCop' films.

In 1983 we say Michael Keaton in the title role in 'Mr. Mom', which was directed by Stan Dragoti.

The original The Idolmaker was directed by Taylor Hackford and starred Ray Sharkey.

Poltergeist was originally released in 1982 and was followed by 2 sequels.

The Hercules film has been in development hell at Spyglass for quite some time. Peter Berg is rumored to be producing.

According to the trade, the "story centers on the mythical figure, having turned his back on the gods, becoming a mercenary and training a ruthless army."



UPDATE: MGM reps have informed us that they only have three "official" films on the slate for 2012. Here is what they said...

I cannot comment on the record, but wanted to be sure that you had accurate information about MGM’s current film slate. Contrary to what was reported in Variety, MGM has NO films on their slate other than the previously announced HOBBITs, currently in production in New Zealand; the upcoming BOND 23, currently in pre-produciton; and yesterday’s announcement of the new HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, a co-financing deal with Paramount. All of these films are slated for release in 2012.
