The “Robocop” franchise may be following in the footsteps of the “Halloween” series with a feature film revival that serves as a direct sequel to the original and ignores the continuity of all the sequels and remakes that came in between.
In an interview with Zeitgeist Entertainment Magazine at the Barbados Independent Film Festival, screenwriter Ed Neumeier revealed he’s working on a sequel to the 1987 film at MGM right now and went into a few specifics:
“There’s been a bunch of other RoboCop movies and there was recently a remake and I would say this would be kind of going back to the old RoboCop we all love and starting there and going forward. So it’s a continuation really of the first movie. In my mind. So it’s a little bit more of the old school thing.”
Paul Verhoeven’s iconic sci-fi action thriller celebrated its 30th anniversary last year and returned to theaters for nationwide screenings this past Fall.
