Maniac Cop 4 In The Works

Cult video favourite Maniac Cop looks like he may be coming back for a fourth encounter:
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.
