fb.indiewire.com – There was once a time when Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini were deemed the right fit for a "Scooby-Doo" live action reboot.

Writer Ed Brubaker Refuses To Remain Silent About The Maniac Cop Remake

dreadcentral.com – Never one to hate all remakes equally, I'm quite excited about the Maniac Cop redo. With original trilogy director William Lustig producing and Only God Forgives director Nic Winding Refn also sitting behind-the-scenes, it's hard to cast a cynical eye on the project. I was happy last week when it was announced that comic writer Ed Brubaker ("Criminal", "Captain America") would pen Matt Cordell's latest adventure. 19 weeks 6 days ago via brucelee

‘Winter Soldier’ Creator Ed Brubaker Scripted the ‘Maniac Cop’ Remake

feedproxy.google.com – I keep forgetting that Nicolas 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 incomparable Robert Z’Dar as the title character, and featured Bruce Campbell and Tom Atkins. 21 weeks 1 day ago via brucelee
