Maniac Cop – Remake

maniac_copNicolas Winding Refn is producing a remake of Maniac Cop. He’s got the film’s original director, William Lustig, working with him as producer, and that’s a pretty good combination. This new Maniac Cop will likely be rather different from Lustig’s original exploitation effort, which starred the Robert Z’Dar as the title character, and featured Bruce Campbell and Tom Atkins.

Great news about the remake is that Ed Brubaker, the comics writer who created the Winter Soldier storyline and whose Criminal and Gotham Central are among the best comics runs of the last decade, has scripted the film.
