Neill Blomkamp Discusses RoboCop Sequel

Neill Blomkamp Discusses RoboCop Sequel
Director Neill Blomkamp recently spoke about the upcoming RoboCop sequel, RoboCop Returns, a project that he will be bringing to life for MGM.

Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner, the original creators, have signed on to write and produce the film. The 1987 original was directed by Paul Verhoeven. Blomkamp spoke of how he wants the project to turn out.

"If I can be honest to what Paul Verhoeven did and almost try to emulate that in a way, then I feel like it does have value and we're not doing it for the sake of just doing it, but there's something in there that may have value for the audience", said Blomkamp.

He went on to say, "RoboCop is really cool because it's something that had enough of an effect on me as a kid and it's an environment that I would like to work inside of. If awesome opportunities like RoboCop present themselves where the core ideas are not mine or Oats' ideas, then that's a really good way to interact with Hollywood and I can keep the more crazy, more personal ideas in the Oats realm."

A RoboCop reboot was released in 2014 to poor reviews despite a cast that included Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, and Samuel L. Jackson.

There's no release date yet for the film.
