RoboCop Returns (TBA, D: TBA)

https://io9.gizmodo.com/there-could-...-no-1822313876


Robocop
In an interview with Zeitgeist Entertainment Magazine, original Robocop screenwriter Ed Neumeier revealed heís working on a sequel to the 1987 film that will ignore the events of Robocop 2, Robocop 3 and the 2014 remake.


Thereís 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 itís a continuation really of the first movie. In my mind. So itís a little bit more of the old school thing.

Personally, I really liked the 2014 movie. I'd love to see a sequel to that one.

Will Weller be in it? Then it's not really a sequel to the original. Remake was bland. Do it right or stop making them.

The original is a classic sci-fi movie.
R2 was OK.
The remake was nothing special.

Re: Robocop 2 re-do reportedly in development (sequel to 1987 movie)

There really is no story I can think of that would require making another Robocop 2. The third one, yea. As a matter of fact, they should just remake Robocop 3. this time they'll have a real budget instead of sinking ship from a studio going under.

Also, they failed at the PG remake. That doesn't give me much hope. Won't most people think Robocop 2 is a sequel to that one at this point????

Re: Robocop 2 re-do reportedly in development (sequel to 1987 movie)

I really have a soft spot for Robocop 2. Kid gangster with a lunchbox machine gun, psychotic drug addicted robot monster and everyone in town has somehow gotten even shittier. Good stuff

I'd also like a sequel to the reboot. I thought it was pretty good, all things considered.

So, the new Halloween is going to ignore all the sequels and now Robocop?
This the new trend?

Terminator 3 perhaps?

I'm down for that.

The next Terminator that Cameron is producing is supposedly going to be the true third film and pick up after Judgement Day.

I kind of have mixed feelings on these sequels that ignore other sequels. In this case neither the second or third film are as good as the first but like others I like Robocop 2 for a guilty pleasure movie. I also surprisingly liked the reboot quite a bit. I donít think it got a fair shot by most as everyone was too quick to judge it against the original and not take it on its own merits. Itís really not a bad film and I wouldnít have minded a sequel.

Yup, I dont care what anyone says, Robocop 2 is amazing.

I dont even think there is a need to ignore 2 and 3. The only thing really significant is Lewis died. I would love to see an out dated Murphy coming back years after #3.

Robocop 2 doesn't need a re-do. Move along Neumeier...

I think the Lewis thing is a big thing but also how OCP changed.

I too loved 2 though my only complaint is they made the old man the villain as opposed to the first one where he had some scruples.

Re: Robocop 2 re-do reportedly in development (sequel to 1987 movie)

Hmm, what other franchise could possibly redo a sequel. We've got Halloween 2 and Terminator 3 coming. Possibly Robocop. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series has already done it God knows how many times. The Return of the Living Dead is technically a sequel to Night.

If Anthony Perkins was alive you could bet they'd do a sequel to Psycho ignoring 2,3,4.

What about a new Exorcist 2 with Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn and Friedkin coming back.

Or how about a new Prequel trilogy with only 4,5,6 being canon.

I have a feeling this IS going to be a new trend.

I still have yet to see 2 and 3. I made the mistake of doing that with the Beverly Hills Cop sequels.

Hell, they could re-do X-Men 3 and treat the existing X3 as if it was all a bad dream.

They pretty much are... DoFP wiped that one out, and now they are redoing the Dark Phoenix storyline.
