Alex Cox planning Repo Man sequel
The original starred Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton and focused on their search for a 1964 Chevy Malibu with a mysterious cargo.
Now Cox is looking for studio support for a sequel entitled Repo Chick, which has been inspired by the subprime mortgage crisis in the US.
Talking to ScreenDaily.com, the maverick director said: "The repo business has expanded to everything from boats, houses, aeroplanes, small nations ... children."
He spoke of his movie plans at an event to launch his autobiography X Films: True confessions of a Radical Film-maker.
Cox, whose films include Sid And Nancy and Revengers Tale, was reluctant to go into detail about his attachment to Chumbawumba's forthcoming movie The Briefcase, but did say: "The subject matter is secret. But it is guaranteed to piss the right people off."
A retrospective of Cox's work is currently running at London's Barbican cinema until July 8th.
