Speaking to MTV News, original Robocop screenwriter Ed Neumeier has expressed his interest in directing a possible further instalment in the franchise. “I would love to make a Robocop movie,” the writer/director has said, “I actually have a lot of ideas about what we could do with Robocop now. I think he’s a vital character at the moment.”
MGM has already revealed that a new movie featuring the ‘future of law enforcement’ is on the cards and the current state of the world and its terrorism-fearing post 9/11 climate would make it a perfect time for Robocop, and his scathing social satire, to make a big-screen return. Our fingers are well and truly crossed.
