Cox on the storyline for a possible sequel


Filmmaker Alex Cox has been trying to get a sequel to his 1984 classic “Repo Man” off-the-ground for longer than Paris has had money. Now, it seems the studio behind that original film (Universal) might be interested in exploring those follow-up possibilities.

Speaking in an interview on the newly-released “Repo Man : Collectors Edition“, Cox says one of the films stars, actor Miguel Sandavol (Archie), has come up with a really interesting premise for a sequel.

“Miguel Sandoval has actually come up with an alternative sequel to Repo Man, for a very small fee, which is – we steal the idea for John Boorman’s film Point Blank. Otto comes back for revenge on the four repo men.

Cox says Emilio Estevez, Harry Dean Stanton, Tracey Walter, Sy Richardson and Tom Finnegan would hopefully be involved.

The repo-men of the first film have all “become very rich off the proceeds of the Malibu” in this sequel, adds Cox, so Otto “goes on this vengeance trail, like Lee Marvin in the Boorman film. Let’s do it!”

In “Repo Man”, Emilio Estevez played an angry young street punk who throws his supermarket job in for a lucrative career in repossessing cars. But from the moment he steps foot into the office of the dodgy dealers, his life takes a dramatic – rather absurd – turn. Suddenly the MIB are hot on his tail, Cars earn magical powers and the remains of four aliens are found in the trunk of one of the automobiles.
