Forget the crappy remake from 2014; according to original RoboCop screenwriter Ed Neumeier he is currently working on a direct sequel to the 1987 classic RoboCop starring Peter Weller.
“I didn’t expect to be talking about [RoboCop] thirty years later. It was kind of the start of my career and later we did Starship Troopers – which was an enormous movie that took forever.” Neumeier told Zeitgeist Magazine. “I think all of that came out of that and it’s nice that people are still interested in RoboCop and they have me working on a new one at MGM right now so maybe we’ll get another one out of it.”
Asked for details on the movie, Neumeier said, “Well, here’s what I’ll say. We’re not supposed to say too much. 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.
