News Neill Blomkamp Hired to Direct ‘RoboCop Returns’ for MGM; R-Rated Sequel to the 1987 Film! Published 1 year ago on July 12, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Deadline shared the exclusive news on Wednesday that MGM is developing a new installment of RoboCop and has set District 9 director Neill Blomkamp to helm the picture, which is titled RoboCop Returns. The studio hopes to revive a franchise that began with the Paul Verhoeven-directed satirical sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987. Original writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner are producing and exec producing, respectively. Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote the Terminator film that Tim Miller is shooting, will rewrite the script that Neumeier and Miner wrote years ago as a planned sequel to Verhoeven’s hit, an installment that never happened. Official plot details: “Anarchy reigns and the fate of Detroit hangs in the balance as RoboCop makes his triumphant return to fight crime and corruption.” You can read everything that Blomkamp had to say about RoboCop Returns with the folks over at Deadline right here. Not only that, Blomkamp took to his official Twitter account today to answer one fans question on whether or not the new film would be R-Rated.
