Posted September 28, 2018 07:30:46 A long-time fan of the sci-fi blockbuster, Robocop, writer/director Joe Carnahan has decided to spend the rest of his life as a robot.
The film, which starred Michael Biehn and was written and directed by Carnahan, was originally set to release in 2018, but it was delayed to 2021 to be closer to the film’s release date.
Carnahan told the Guardian he felt that delaying the film made it too risky for his family.
“I don’t want to spend my entire life as an engineer and have no future,” Carnahan said.
“We have a very specific, deep and important project coming up, and it will take us a lot longer than 20 years to get there.
So we’re going to wait a little bit longer.”
Carnahan’s film The Last of Us will be released on December 9, 2019, with the film also being released as an episodic series in 2017 and 2018.
While Carnahan did not give any specifics about what the episodic release would entail, he did say it would include a number of special features that fans have come to expect from his films.
“If you don’t have the time to read every single story and the characters and the story, we want to give you an extended look at the last episode that will hopefully make you laugh, cry, or just have a good time,” Carnigan said.
Carnahm also stated that the episodical release would be similar to his previous work, The Last Samurai, and that it will be the same story with the same characters.
Carnaghan previously told The Guardian that he would “take some time off from the movie” to focus on the production of The Last Of Us, and he added that the production team has been working on the film for a year.
“The production team is getting ready to shoot it,” Carnahan said.
