Zechs here. I love me some slasher films, and there's no franchise I enjoy more than the Maniac Cop films that were released in the late 80s to early 90s. All of them were written by Larry Coehn and directed by William Lustig (okay the third -  Maniac Cop III: Badge of Silence - saw Lustig leave in the middle, but he still got credit). So when I learned today from Bleeding Cool that the remake is moving along and its screenplay was written by Ed Brubaker (you're seeing the greatest idea from his tenure at the Big Two being used in Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters at this moment), I had to report on this and spread that Matt Cordell love.

But back to the Maniac Cop remake. Not only is Brubaker writing the screenplay, but Nicholas Winding Refn (who did this little film called Pusher and this other small film called Drive) and Lustig himself are producing it. We'll be learning who'll direct the film at Cannes.
