Forsythe Sets His Sights On ‘RoboCop Returns’

Did you know that RoboCop was getting (another) sequel? Err… Most of us here didn’t. Anyway, there is one in the works and it seems it will follow directly after the original 1987 movie. It is unknown if it will ignore the events of RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3 like RoboCop: The Series did on television, but it isn’t a follow up to the 2014 RoboCop reboot movie.

It’s being reported that Abe Forsythe has been recruited as the director for RoboCop Returns, and he will also rewrite the existing script by Justin Rhodes. The movie previously had Neil Blomkamp on as director, but he stepped away from the project this past August.

It wasn’t announced when RoboCop Returns would stomp onto the screen, but it might be soon as one of the reasons Blomkamp left the project was that the studio wanted to shoot in short order.
