Neill Blomkamp has just released his latest failed attempt at partially rebooting an R-rated sci-fi action movie of the ’80s!
The director, previously attached to a failed Alien re-launch that would have picked up after Aliens and ignored the rest, just announced that his new RoboCop 2 that would’ve replace the old RoboCop 2 isn’t going anywhere.
“Off Robocop,” the director of Short Circuit in South Africa tweeted today. “I am shooting new horror/thriller and MGM can’t wait/ need to shoot Robocop now. Excited to watch it in theaters with other fans.”
Sadly, with James Cameron and Shane Black already respectively returning to the Terminator and Predator franchises, Blomkamp is unlikely to have a future in never quite making sequels to those iconic and gory science-fiction actioners of thirty-some years ago.
