Robot movie director Richard Jewell, who is also known as the film critic for the New York Times, is coming back to his old stomping grounds.
The filmmaker will be back at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in June for its 70th anniversary.
In July, he will be a part of the New Horizons International Film Festival.
In addition to the Academy Awards, he has won numerous other awards, including the Peabody, the Lifetime Achievement Award for Best Documentary and an Emmy Award.
In the meantime, he and his production company, Jewell Films, are preparing to start production on his next project, which will be called RoboCop.
The film, set to hit theaters in 2019, is the story of a young police officer named Steve “Buddy” Robocop who must work with the likes of former cop and future cop killer William “Buster” Stokes to save the world from a series of threats from cyborgs and robots.
The movie is a remake of the 1979 film RoboCop, which starred Tom Cruise, Michael J. Fox, John Goodman and Jodie Foster.
