Neill Blomkamp Confirms He is No Longer on RoboCop Reboot

In July 2018, Collider reported that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp was set to helm a RoboCop reboot tentatively titled RoboCop Returns. Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner were on board to produce and executive-produce, respectively, while writer Justin Rhodes was retooling a sequel script that Neumeier and Miner wrote decades ago that never came to fruition.

But now it appears that Blomkamp is off the project. He tweeted:


“Off Robocop. I am shooting new horror/thriller and MGM can’t wait/ need to shoot Robocop now. Excited to watch it in theaters with other fans. N”

Stay tuned.
