Director John Hyams Says ‘Maniac Cop’ Remake is Going to Happen



Matt Cordell

Back in September of 2017, original Maniac Cop writer Larry Cohen was reporting that the Nicolas Winding Refn produced remake was dead. Today, however, we have a brand new updater from the director himself John Hyams (Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning).

While speaking with the folks over at the Birth Movies Death website, Hyams revealed:

…well, it’d seem like nothing’s happening, but actually quite a bit is happening with it. We’ve been working on it for a few years now, with some starts and stops. But it is going to happen. Right now, Nic Refn, our producer, who is an amazing filmmaker and a really great guy – he’s stuck by me this whole time and hasn’t let up, which I’m deeply thankful for and inspired by – is getting everything set. But between Ed Brubaker and myself, we are developing it, and it actually just took an interesting turn recently. This is all stuff I’m going to be able to talk about a little more in the coming months, but things are definitely coming together on it.

The film was penned by Ed Brubaker (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Angel of Death).
