Remember when RoboCop was rebooted in 2014 to mixed reactions? Well now you can choose to ignore it completely, as it appears a direct sequel to the 1987 cult hit is on the horizon. Sitting down for an interview with Zeitgeist Magazine, Ed Neumeier, who was a screenwriter on the original film, let it be known that he’s working on a new RoboCop movie for MGM.
“They have me working on a new one at MGM right now, so maybe we’ll get another one (RoboCop sequel) out of it,” Neumeier says. When pressed about the details by the Zeitgeist author, the Starship Troopers 3 director was understandably tight-lipped. He did, however, imply that this new film would ignore the most recent reboot attempt as well as both sequels from the 1990’s and tie in more directly with the events of the 1987 version. “So it’s a continuation really of the first movie,” he states. “In my mind. So it’s a little bit more of the old-school thing.”
