Maniac Cop 4 In Development

Good to know Officer Matt Cordell should soon be back in action, even better to know it’ll be in a sequel and not a redux. This from Fangoria, and I first caught it from a number of places – among them Maniac which recently relaunched (give it a look!).

At this past weekend’s Anthology Film Archives screening of the first two films in the MANIAC COP series, director William Lustig broke the news that the franchise, on which he teamed for three movies with screenwriter Larry Cohen, will soon see a rebirth. “Larry and I have gotten the sequel rights back for MANIAC COP, and we’re preparing to do a MANIAC COP 4,” Lustig tells Fango. “I don’t have any more details other than that; this all happened within the last month, so it’s so fresh… When I get back to Los Angeles, Larry and I are going to sit down and work on something.” No doubt Lustig will be seeking more creative control than he had with the last installment, 1993’s MANIAC COP 3, which ran afoul of producer interference.

  4. Great news! I’m very happy about this as well as Lustig & Cohen teaming up once more. Cannot wait for this!

    Thanks for the nod, good sir!

  5. Are The Maniac Cop Movies Any Good??? Someone Please Tell Me.

  6. when will it be out

  7. I heard that Tom Sizemore’s name came up when asked who
    would be considered for recasting Matt Cordell if not Robert Z’Dar… It should be someone as ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING as Z’Dar himself… How about Andrew Brynarski (the new leatherface) he’s pretty scary looking and a LARGER man!

  8. Yea I think Robert zdar or zdarski his real name whatever you call him is too old to play Matt the same way he did in the first three films. I would to see another polish American play Cordell not that being polish to play the part matters i’am polish myself that’s why I mentioned it Andrew bynarski I spelt that wrong did a great Job playing leatherface in the 2 new tcm films plus like someone said before Andrew is a little bit taller and bulky than rob I believe rob was only a little over 6ft roughly 6ft2 or 3 and weighing in the lower 200 pound range for the three films anywhere from 200-245 but Andrew is 6ft5 and like 315 pound bodybuilder it would be awesome as Cordell

  9. they should get Tyler Mane to play Cordell, he’s 6’6 and weigh’s ova 200lbs he’d be great for the role of cordell.

  10. Mane played Micheal Myers in the remake of 2008 Halloween.

  11. It’s been ages since this was reported. Last I heard Lustig was going to produce but not direct, which made me quite unhappy. Besides, at this stage, Cordell would be – what – a skeleton?
