The shooting of the new film “Robocop”, which has already received the name RoboCop Returns, will be dealt with by Neil Blomkamp, well-known for the tapes “District No. 9”, “Robot named Chappi”, “Elysium: Heaven is not on earth.” After them, however, Blomkamp moved into the shadows. Studio MGM intends to revive the original film franchise, reports Deadline.
The next time that Robocop will return, talked at the beginning of this year. Then it was reported that the script writer “Robocop” in 1987 Edward Neumeier will participate in the development of a new film franchise. This information is confirmed. In addition, Neumeier will act as producer, and Michael Miner will become the executive producer.
The processing of the script, which some time ago was written by Neumayer and Miner for the sequel of Paul Verhoeven’s painting, will be directed by Justin Rhodes. He, by the way, helped Tim Miller with the new “Terminator”. So the team seems to be getting pretty good.
