We’re a day or two late on this (hey, we can’t catch everything!) but it appears that Drive filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is lined up to produce a remake of Maniac Cop. Director William Lustig’s cult favorite action/horror flick came out back in 1988 and featured B-movie icon Bruce Campbell. Lustig is working on this new film as well, alongside original writer/producer Larry Cohen.
Says Cohen: “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.“
