His embracement of femininity and vulnerability made him post-genre before it was the norm. While that inability to be pigeonholed set him apart from his rock peers, it also begged the question: “What do we do with this?” Follow us on…

Neill Blomkamp leaves Robocop Returns

Neill Blomkamp won’t be heading to Detroit after all. On Wednesday night, the District 9 filmmaker confirmed on Twitter that he’s dropped Robocop Returns, the much-hyped direct sequel to the 1987 original. He wrote, “Off Robocop. I am shooting new horror/thriller and MGM can’t wait/ need to shoot Robocop now. Excited to watch it in theaters with other fans.” There’s no word on what that horror/thriller may be, but this is disappointing news. Disappointing because this is the second iconic franchise Blomkamp has exited stage left. If you recall, he…
