Edward Neumeier, who wrote the 1987 classic, revealed in an interview at the Barbados Independent Film Festival that he is, "working on a new one at MGM right now' and that maybe they'll 'get another one out of it." When pressed for more details, the writer wouldn't give any specifics, but it's clear that this won't be another reboot, and that it will continue the continuity from the original movies. Here's what he had to say about this new Robocop movie.
"Well, here's what I'll say. We're not supposed to say too much. There's 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 it's a continuation really of the first movie. In my mind. So it's a little bit more of the old school thing."
The original RoboCop is so popular the classic even returned to theaters for nationwide screenings this past fall. The original RoboCop earned $53.4 million from a $13 million budget back in 1987, which, when adjusted for inflation, equals a $125.4 million today.
