It’s only been a few days since we learned that HBO provided the green light for a Maniac Cop HBO TV Series. There are few details about the new series. However, Nicolas Winding Refn, the shows producer, provided some insight as to what we can expect.
Nicolas took to Twitter to state: “Dear Friends, Maniac Cop will be my version of a cocaine-fueled, neon-soaked, bubble gum-wrapped, mayhem-infused, speed-driven universe of thrill-seekers who are consumed by that ever-present struggle of good vs. evil….but evil is winning.”
While I am unsure exactly what that means, I expect the HBO TV Series to be violent, bloody, and fast-paced.
If you aren’t familiar with the films, then go back and check out this 1988 slasher film. The original movie was directed by William Lustig based on a screenplay by Larry Cohen. The original film had two sequels, Maniac Cop 2 (1990) and Maniac Cop III: Badge of Silence.
The official synopsis provided by IMDb for the show states, “There’s a monster on the loose on the streets of Los Angeles, or is it just a killer cop out to punish the city that destroyed him.”
