This news came in yesterday but we unfortunately didn’t have all the info. Now we do and are bringing it to you.


Nicholas Winding Refn(Bronson,Pusher)is currently talking to Larry Cohen and William Lustig about a Maniac Cop prequel.

Yes, a tale set before the 1988 film which starred Tom Atkins, Bruce Campbell and Robert Z’Dar.

Alex Aja has produced a redo of Maniac starring Elijah Wood.

Cohen spoke to the Daily Grindhouse about the Maniac Cop project.


From the site:

“It’s going to be more a prequel than anything else, I am really excited to come back to this world especially since Nick is going to be a part of it” said Cohen. “Nick (Winding Refn) has been talking to us about it for a while now and I had an idea that would work so we’re going to do it.” Cohen said that the film will still maintain the noir-ish comic book feel of the first three films but “with a bigger budget than the others have had.”

Lustig cautioned that “the project isn’t 100% signed off on but it’s pretty close.”
