Rising Australian filmmaker Abe Forsythe, coming off the well reviewed Lupita Nyong’o zombie comedy “Little Monsters,” has been set to helm “Robocop Returns” for MGM and Atlas Entertainment.
The project is being developed as a direct sequel to the original 1987 Paul Verhoeven film and will ignore the subsequent sequels and 2014 reboot.
Ed Neumier and Michael Miner, the screenwriters of the original, penned the script years ago with Justin Rhodes (“Terminator: Dark Fate”) penning a recent re-write.
Forsythe will now re-write the script penned by Rhodes. Neumier, Miner and Richard Suckle are producing.
