Details for the Neill Blomkamp RoboCop also include that it appears to be ignoring any of the RoboCop sequels, much like the new Halloween movie had done, and is not associated with the recent 2014 reboot that featured Joel Kinnaman wearing a sleeker and new version of the armor.
The new movie is based on a script written previously by original RoboCop writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner who are on board as executive producers and are actively involved.
August of last year also saw Neill Blomkamp state he would like original actor, Peter Weller, back.
According to IMDb, the title for the film is RoboCop Returns. No release date or cast has been announced as of yet.
