A ROBOCOP Sequel Could Still Happen?

Written by Andrew Pollard Tuesday, 15 September 2015

Movie News

In some interesting news, it looks as if there’s still a chance that Jose Padilha’s opinion-splitting RoboCop could still get itself a sequel.

Den of Geek is reporting the news, claiming that a sequel to the 2014 redo could happen down to China. When the film was released, it ended up grossing $50 million in China. As a result, options are being looked at from Sony to potentially co-produce a sequel with a Chinese firm, with claims that any sequel could even partly take place in China.

One sticking point, however, is that star Joel Kinnaman has a contract with Warner Brothers to reprise the role of Rick Flag as and when needed. Kinnaman is set to debut as Flag, of course, in next year’s Suicide Squad.

Whether a RoboCop sequel ever happens, we’ll have to wait and see, but expect more on this as and when anything concrete does develop.
