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.

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

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. 4 years 10 weeks ago via brucelee
