A demented police officer is set to wreak havoc once again. Fangoria caught up with Maniac Cop director William Lustig who confirmed that he and screenwriter Larry Cohen, who wrote the first three films, have secured the rights to the series and a Maniac Cop 4 is currently getting started.

"Larry and I have gotten the sequel rights back for Maniac Cop, and we're preparing to do a Maniac Cop 4," Lustig said. "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."

We'll surely keep you posted on more news of this sequel as soon as we have more information.
