MGM, the studio that pulled itself out of bankruptcy, is moving forward with films other than the next James Bond film and The Hobbit. Most of the movies on their slate are remakes.

* Robocop. This was planned before the studio's financial woes struck but it's somewhat assumed that attached director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) is no longer involved.

* Mr. Mom. One of the most hilarious movies of the 1980s. Starring Michael Keaton, Teri Garr and written by John Hughes, the movie played on then-changing gender roles during America's last recession when the husband is laid off and becomes a stay-at-home dad while his wife goes to work.

* Poltergeist. This is being talked about as a four-quel rather than a reboot of the original about a violent ghost inhabiting a home.

* Hercules. Peter Berg (Hancock) to tell the story of the demigod who turns his back on Mt. Olympus
