Fans of the Maniac Cop franchise, launched in the late 1980s, have a new iteration to look forward too. Deadline recently broke the news that a TV series reboot is in the works with Nicolas Winding Refn (The Neon Demon) at the helm.
Maniac Cop, a TV series reimagining of the cult classic film franchise from Nicolas Winding Refn (Too Old To Die Young) and John Hyams (Universal Soldier: Regeneration), has been greenlighted by HBO, which will carry the event series in North America, and by Canal+, which has taken French rights.
Set in Los Angeles, Maniac Cop is told through a kaleidoscope of characters, from cop to common criminal. A killer in uniform has uncaged mayhem upon the streets. Paranoia leads to social disorder as a city wrestles with the mystery of the exterminator in blue – is he mere mortal, or a supernatural force?
