John Hyams Helming Maniac Cop Reboot

hyamsNormally we approach remakes with caution and even cynicism.  However this one we might want to look upon with a more keen eye, because the director will be John Hyams.  And the movie will be Maniac Cop.  According to Twitchfilm that project is going ahead.

Innocent people are being brutally murdered on the streets of New York City by a uniformed police officer. As the death toll rises and City Hall attempts a cover-up, Frank McCrae heads the investigation. A young cop, Jack Forrest, finds himself under arrest as the chief suspect, having been the victim of a set-up by the real killer and a mysterious woman phone-caller. Forrest, his girlfriend Theresa, and McCrae set out to solve the puzzle before the Maniac Cop can strike again. (IMDB summary for the original film)

Hyams did a good job with Universal Soldier so I don’t think there is much to worry about there.  We look forward to see what Hyams can put on screen!
