ROBOCOP RETURNS Director Neill Blomkamp Wants Peter Weller To Reprise The Role Of Alex Murphy

Last month we found out that MGM was developing a new RoboCop movie with Neill Blomkamp on board to direct, and the Chappie filmmaker has now expressed his desire to see Peter Weller return to the role...

It was recently announced that MGM is working on a direct sequel to to Paul Verhoeven's original RoboCop with Neill Blomkamp on board to direct, and the District 9 filmmaker has now strongly hinted that he'd like to get Peter Weller back under the helmet as "The Future of Law Enforcement."

Here's Blomkamp's response to a Tweet wondering who should portray the titular cyborg in his film.



It seems clear that Blomkamp wants Weller to return as Officer Alex Murphy, but whether that actually happens remains to be seen.

RoboCop Returns is being developed from a script that was actually written by Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner as a follow-up to Verhoeven's beloved original. Terminator reboot scribe Justin Rhodes will now get to work on a rewrite.

Tell us, would you like to see Weller reprise his iconic role, or do you think they should get someone else? Be sure to leave a comment down below.
