However, it's this next bit that gets weird.
Variety reports that Refn's production company is taking on the entire Maniac Cop trilogy. This isn't even angry news, people, it's confused news. Why the renewed interest in this painfully 80s revenge slasher series? I couldn't even tell you, but I'm obviously hoping that whatever transpires is a worthy send-up to the late Robert Z'Dar who played the revenge seeking Matt Cordell.
Refn and original series director William Lustig will produce the film, which has yet to secure a director or cast, but word on the street is that it'll start shooting in LA this summer.
Would you be down for a Maniac Cop reboot?
Does it need to happen? I'm still confused.
